History Parents are ‘White Dawn’ x ‘Pinocchio’ and was developed by breeder E. W. Schwartz. Conrad-Pyle of Star Roses introduced Sea Foam in 1964. It is grown in the White House rose garden.

This is a rambling rose that can be used as a short climber. The creamy white blossoms glow in the nighttime garden. For something dramatic, try Sea Foam trained as a standard.

Landscape Uses

Ideal for use on pillars and trellises, or to drape along the top rail of a rustic fence. Of course, Sea Foam can also be trained as a weeping standard. This form can be very dramatic in the landscape.
