I'd like to purchase a Jabobite rose ,but some say it's alba maxima and some say semi plena, help ,please



Hi, welcome ti GoY, the Jacobite rose is Rosa x Alba, cultivar Alba maxima, semi plena is 1 of the oldest roses known, and R Alba was originally a "sport" of this, Alba Maxima is the double flowered form of the white rose of york, so whatever you call it, it is still a Jacobite rose, Derek.
