Maybe Lilian Austin?
I'm trying to figure out what a rose bush is. It was growing wild at my parents' old house and I loved it; I'd like to find something similar to plant here.
It grows on a fairly low bush (maybe 3' high) with long almost viney branches - probably it would climb a bit if you put it on lattice. The flowers are pink, about 2" across, quite bushy, and smell sweet - almost fruity.
It's never had winter protection and has always done fine. I don't remember what color the hips or buds are. The leaves aren't very big. It's thorny, but not so much that you have to wear gloves to handle it.
I went to http://www.everyrose.com and found Lilian Austin, this looks a lot like it but I'm not sure. Anyone here who has one of these and can tell me what it smells like?
