Anyone heard of a seven year rose?

countrygirl_scAugust 30, 2005

She has to move and cannot take the rose with her. the original was planted by her great-grandmother and is over 100 years old. she says it is a pink climber and every seven years it blooms red. I took as many cuttings as I could and I hope some of them take. The bush is in really terrible shape as she has been sick for a long time. There were a few buds so I put those cuttings in water. One of them opened and it is very fragrant - sort of fruity. does this look or sound familiar to anyone?
