Here is a better picture-hopefully.
Let's see. You're in zone 6B if that's your zip code next to your name.
When you say that the rose is taking over your yard, do you mean that it is really big, or is it putting out suckers all over the place and spreading because of the suckers?
How often does this rose bloom? Once only? Several times throughout the summer? Or, is it almost continuously in bloom?
Is the rose fragrant? How tall does it get? About how wide? Do you have any idea of how long it's been there?
It's very pretty. I wish I had a rose like that taking over my yard. :-)
It would be helpful if we could get a picture of some of the leaves and canes, if possible.
See my posting under same title dated 8/31 for details and thanks so much for your help!
