Can you help me solve the 8 year mystery?
HI! Here is a rose that my sister planted about 8 years ago on a property that I now live at. She is not a gardener by any means and could care less what it is. But I have been curious for years. It is gorgeous to say the least! It gets up to 7 or 8 feet without support but I have given babies of it to a friend who can get it to grow bigger with support. It is a once bloomer but sometimes given the right weather it will bloom a bit towards the fall. It is highly fragrant and the canes are heavily covered in small needle type thorns. The bud comes quite small but once the rose opens it is about as big around as the end of a soda can. Most importantly to note is that it shoots out babies on runners just like a lilac bush does. It is a fast grower as well. The first season the babies will reach 3 to 4 feet. I love this rose and have used the babies of the mother bush to make a hedge at the side of the house and have given tons away as gifts. Does anyone know what it might be? This is a open rose up close and I hope it helps. Thanks and God bless!
