Found China

collinw(7b)May 14, 2010

Does anyone recognize this found China rose? It was growing in pretty dense shade. I could not tell much about the overall bush form, since the rose had obviously been pruned down to about 2 feet tall. I suspect that it would get much taller.

Blooms are around 2". Medium old rose fragrance.Multiple shades of pink in each bloom. 15-20 petals.Blooms in clusters of 3-5.

5 leaflets with red stems.Pointy leaflets. Medium sized thorns, sparsely spaced.Red thorns on new growth.

Any ideas?

Perhaps Napoleon?

Thanks Jannorcal, but I think Napoleon has a fuller bloom.
