Pink Climber/Shrub?

Posted by newjersey_rose 6-NJ (My Page) on

Growing on the side of a hill at one of my customers. Very fragrant small (2-3") semidouble blooms. Very glossy foliage, very much like a polyantha (long and narrow, also with the 7 leaves per stem). Seems to root where it touches the ground. Plant covers the hillside (an area of 10' x 15', and stands about 6' tall) She said she purchased it at a local nursery about 10 years ago......any ideas?

Here's another pic of a spray and the foliage.

That looks very similar to an UN-identified rose I have...too bad I can't help you out! Maybe someone will see this! I can't figure out my rose for the life of me, despite hours scouring HMF and the internets.

Probably 'William Baffin'.

RE: Pink Climber/Shrub?

Foliage is way too glossy and the flowers have a powerful fragrance so I don't think it's William Baffin. I'm wondering if its a shrub rose that sold one year and then taken off the shelves the next.......aka Jackson and Perkins. The customer says she purchased it at a local nursery about 10 years ago. Thanks for the suggestion though. Gives me the impression of a modern Hybrid Musk.
