The last of the Grootendorst family of sports is White Grootendorst. White Grootendorst is a sport of Pink Grootendorst. Occasionally, White Grootendorst will send out a branch that reverts back to its pink parent. The growth habit of White Grootendorst is not as vigorous as it’s pink and red relatives, but the flowers are probably the loveliest of the family. Fragrance is very slight. Disease resistance is good.
