Is this Fortuniana?
I have never noticed the rose growing just across the street from moms in the neighbors back yard. I guess I always thought it was some vine or it just was not visible from the street.
It growing the a different neighbors yard so when I see her I can ask, but I rarely see her (she is a florist so she should know...lol)
But it looks like a banksia, very few thorns, probably 20 feet tall, and I think a once bloomer
