Looking to identify this rose

pineysamazonwifeApril 23, 2009

We bought this with no open blooms. it was sold as a Pinata but is obviously not. the growing patern is very similar to the Pinata, however. Can anyone tell me what I've got? I love it and would really like to know. Thanks

Done some more research. Based on online photos it looks as if it could be Sombreuil. Can anyone confirm this?

Here is a link that might be useful:

I think you have made a good guess. I grow that variety, which is recently known by what is probably the correct original name of Colonial White.

It's a very nice, mannerly climber in my garden and I enjoy the fragrance.

It is difficult to tell from that photo. It might be Sombreuil. Is it a climber?

I don't think Sombreuil has that much yellow in it.....

I don't grow it now, but I have in the past. Could you post more photos and try to make them larger?

we just planted it a couple months ago so it is still getting used to its new home. As a result I am eagerly awaiting new blooms and will post the pictures as soon as I have them. I am wondering if they will be any different since my garden is obviously a much nicer home than the black nursery pot it was in. I can say for sure that it does appear to have a more creamy appearance than most of the pictures I have seen.
