identifying old rose
A 95 year old neighbour has the most beautiful rose, which was planted before she married over 60 years ago. It does repeat, is a true soft pink, and if memory serves me with a sort of semi-hybrid-tea form as its opening, and has a pleasant but not overwhelming scent. It withstands this maritime climate and is on its own roots. Hoping to get some suggestions. So far no websites nor pictures are much help. It would have been sold in Nova Scotia or New England perhaps, early in the 20th century. Its gorgeous, and if I knew its name it might still be available from someone. She hasn't offered that I can remove the smaller side bush its produced, and I have never had success with taking cuttings. Any help will be very appreciated.
