Unknown white-flowered climber

alicia7b(z7b/8aNC)June 28, 2005

I rooted a cutting of this behind a shopping center a year ago. A climber, to at least 10 feet; thorny; very healthy, glossy, bronze-green foliage; smallish full white flowers with ivory-yellow centers, 2 1/2-3" wide, mild scent. Anyone know what this is?

How do photos/description of Ilse Krohn Superior and White Cap at helpmefind.com compare to your rose?

Here is a link that might be useful: Ilse Krohn Superior

The flowers of both do look a lot like mine, but the foliage on the Ilse Krohn Superior doesn't look like a match. The foliage on the IKS looks darker and much more matte. Unfortunately I cannot tell about the foliage on the White Cap from the photos at helpmefind. I don't know how big the flowers are either.

I had been wondering perhaps if this rose was Swany.

The flowers on White Cap are too big to be this rose. Thanks for the input littlesmokie.

Thanks, Brian, but I don't think it's that one. I'm familiar with Iceberg and I don't think that's my rose.
