found lovely little lost pink rose
When my daughter cleared the tons of leaf and tree debris from the back yard of her new home, we found this spindly little pink rose growing at the base of a tree. This was in the summer of 2006 and it looked like it had just started growing.
When she decided not to keep the house in Oct 2006, we transplanted it to my back yard since we knew it would not thrive under that row of trees.
Poor thing has a *Y* or *L* shaped growth, as you will see in the pictures.
The leaves are moderately shiny and thicker than the leaves on most of my other rose.
The cane is absolutely rigid and grow straight.
The rose bloom singlely. The buds begin as a very dark pink but the petals go to a light pink as the rose opens.
The smell is sweet and very strong.
The thorns are hooked downward and very strong.
I don't know about the petal count since it is just now opening.
It may be resistant to black spot as some of my other roses have black spot and this one doesn't.
There is detail of the leaves in the photo album.
I really hope someone can help me identify this lovely little lost rose.
