Looking for an expert to identify a mini

I've made this offer before, but didn't word it very clearly. I have several rooted cuttings of a beautiful miniature rose rambler that is a prolific rebloomer, fragrant, and extremely tolerant of the weather in Washington, DC.

I will send a rooted cutting to someone who is really knowledgeable about minis and can identify it when it blooms. Some of my cuttings are blooming already (started rooting them on Nov. 24th) so it shouldn't take long for it to be identified.

I'm dying to find out the name of the rose. It is possibly an old rose, except someone told me that antique roses aren't rebloomers. I've submitted pictures, but never got a firm ID.

If you'd like to do this, please get in touch with me through this thread. I will, of course, check the Rate & Review section and also see how long you've been a member of GW. I've had a couple of scammers contact me recently, so I'm being vigilant, but I'm a nice person and not (unduly) suspicious!

Ginny, why do you believe it is a miniature? I'm not aware of many miniatures that grow like a rambler.

/me suspects Phil has never seen a mature specimen of 'Golden Century'. ;-)
