last fall's cuttings are starting to bloom, more mysteries
here's one of its foliage (ignore that sunflower leaf, please ;^D
Image hosted by Photobucket.com

as you can see, it is very medium light pink (in the neighborhood of Caldwell Pink), sweet scented, cluster blooming, few thorns, tall - this rooted cutting has 'canes' about two feet long, and a relatively horizontal habit

light green foliage, very clean without spraying

any ideas?

I have stuff still finally blooming from last fall's propagation party (thanks, Nay)

The top one has the foliage of a Rosa Wichurana derivative such as 'Dorothy Perkins', the bottom picture seems to be showing something else, with different leaves.

thanks
the bottom one is in the garden, sorry I didn't make that one clear ;^D
pot ghettos interspersed in the garden doesn't help ID ing

this one is too large a bloom and too smelly for Dorothy Perkins (rofl) I just hacked back a jungle of it at my other house
thank you for giving me more info, though...if it's a oncebloomer it may be my only shot

What I meant was it had the same kind of foliage, not that it was that same variety.

it looks too pale to be Russelliana, could it be Tausendschon?
lilac pink to blush to white, with white centers, nearly thornless?
