  Rosa 'Sea Foam' - White shrub/groundcover rose (1963)
 
Rosa Sea Foam in the garden
Rosa 'Sea Foam'planted in the San Marcos Growers garden.
 
A beautiful double white reblooming groundcover rose that makes a dense spreading shrub with small, very glossy leaves that provide a perfect foil for the flowers, much like a foam on the edge of a ocean wave. 'Sea Foam' was bred by E. W. Schwartz and introduced by Conrad-Pyle (Star Roses). The parentage of this rose is unusual as it involves the crossing of two hybrids that themselves were the result of crossing the same two roses; White DawnŽ x Pinocchio x White DawnŽ x Pinocchio crossed with White DawnŽ x Pinocchio. Not to be confused with another rose by the same name that is a seedling of 'Mermaid'. The is a specimen planting of this spilling onto our Yarrow lawn next to the nurseries main office. Winner of the Rome Gold Medal in 1963 and the American Rose Society David Fuerstenberg Prize in 1968. Hardy to zones 5-11. We began growing this very nice and useful growudcover rose in 1993.
