Reminds me of cherry blossoms. Is good for foraged arrangements. I really like this rose.
It is invasive...makes a good fence.

Looks beautiful - thanks for the cutting. Looks more like a sport of Lady Gay to me than a sport of The Fairy. Anyone have more info on this? Lady Gay is a once bloomer and The Fairy repeats so if Lady Carolina is a once bloomer with no repeat that would clinch the ID?

Not necessarily. Many climbing sports of bush roses are once-flowering. Many of the old cl HTs were once flowering. There are once-flowering climbing sports of Mlle Cecile Brunner and the original climbing sport of Iceberg was once-flowering until a further mutation was found which flowered repeatedly. That one has pretty much replaced all the once-flowering Cl. Icebergs in commerce. Lady Carolina repeated at Limberlost Roses in Van Nuys, CA years ago. If the climate and conditions support it, it will repeat. If not, it likely won't. But whether it does or doesn't, once-flowering doesn't prove it's a sport of a once-flowering rose.

This rose tip roots very easily and can become invasive. The prickles are very irritating when attempting to weed in the proximity of the canes. Susceptible to crown gall.

Almost constantly in bloom. Does well in rainy weather.
