No, they almost surely will not. Furthermore, even if you got something 
that looked a bit like the parent, you could not sell it under that name 
even though it isn't a "real" cultivar name but merely a horticultural name 
of convenience.

In addition, there are non-double, non-white forms circulating in commerce 
under the name 'Albus Plenus Odoratus'.
