Single white / pink blush rose, large blooms

betenoireMay 31, 2014

Hello All,

can you please help me to identify this rose? Bought a house last year and inherited what seemed at the time to be a dead old rose in the front garden. Was planning to remove, but unexpectedly it threw out new shoots in the spring and is in full bloom now.
Flowers are single 5 petaled, large (up to 6 inches), pale powdery pink as buds, opening to pearl white flowers with pink blush. Scent similar to a dog rose, very vigorous.
(there is a bit of fungal damage on blooms due to a wet spring which looks like red speckles - please ignore)

I can tell by the botrytis marks on the petals that it is 'Sally Holmes'!
