Named in 1961 in honor of Jacqueline Kennedy, President John F. Kennedy’s wife and the First Lady of the USA, the First Lady rose is the pure embodiment of innocence and elegance. Its ivory white petals with buttercream undertones are reminiscent of the aged ivory of an antique piano key. Unlike most white roses, First Lady adds a touch of regality and class to all special occasions.
