Tryng to ID a white rose in Santa Ynez Valley, CA

timaranJune 30, 2010

I could have sworn I posted this on this forum last week, but it seems to have disappeared. **sigh**

I realize this may be a long shot, but I hope someone can help me identify a lovely white rose.

Recently, I was in the beautiful Santa Ynez Valley of California on vacation. While I was in the tiny village of Los Olivos, I saw a certain type of white rose EVERYWHERE. It appeared to me to be an old fashioned kind of rose. I've tried to upload a picture but it keeps telling me that my image file is too big.

If you are familiar with the area, it is planted in front of almost every building in Los Olivos and the surrounding area. Does anyone know what rose I'm talking about?

Thanks in advance for any info.

Please forgive me if you've already ruled it out, but Iceberg comes to mind. Its ancestry includes a polyantha rose, which gives it an old-fashioned look, and it is popular for landscaping here on the west coast.

The photo link below includes a couple of pictures taken in our central valley:

THANK YOU! EUREKA! That appears to look exactly like the rose I saw everywhere in Los Olivos and environs. Thank you again for your response.

Best regards.
