Tiny blooms, l-o-n-g thorny canes. Help?
For some time, I have been scrubbing the internet trying to find not necessarily a cultivar name, but perhaps a nudge in the right area of identification.
(Pardon me, for I am about to copy and paste.) :-)
Several years ago, I found a beautiful wild pink climbing rose growing in the ditch along a back road here in Northeastern Oklahoma. It was tiny, but blooming profusely. I didn't think too much while transplanting it next to a garden hoop, but it
multiplied quickly, and is now covering much of the hoop.
The roses are tiny, and the canes are very, very long, and must be tied to the garden hoop. There doesn't seem to be any scent to it.
I can't get over how fast this thing grows, and how many new shoots continue to come up. This year (2013) I was able to dig up several volunteers that rooted along a cane on the soil. My apologies, they are spoken for.
Presently on a mission for correct identification. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, as roses are not my forte.
