"Vine View Dk Red Purple" I would like to make a new file for this rose. Alerted to this garden in Williamstown, South Australia by the owner in April 2014. At first I thought it was a HP but not so sure now. This cutting grown plant is in some shade and is regularly watered with rainwater and fertilised

Reminds me a bit of Souvenir du Docteur Jamain. (See my post of may 6 2017 for that rose)

New file for "Vine View Dark Red Purple" opened and photos moved. I will comment further in that file.

Thank you Jay-Jay many of the descriptions of 'Souvenir du Dr. Jamain' fit this rose. Perfume I would rate higher though.

I would rate it (much) higher too, as You might read in one comment for that rose.
Lots of people, that visit our garden, fell as a block for this rose, mainly due to the scent, but to the color, the ability to grow in the (partial) shade and the (almost) lack of prickles too.
It stands at the entrance of our garden to be sniffed regularly, when flowering... and that's what I do.

PS: Members rate the scent as excellent too.
Maybe an idea to rate scent in:
- absent
- faint
- present
- strong
- very strong
- overwhelming

It is rather scant evidence to go on at present, but can anyone tell anything from these pieces of rose as to what variety it might be? There is more information in the Journal section. It climbs to at least 3 metres and has short triangular pale brown and slightly hooked thorns and probably not a rose bred or collected after the beginning of the twentieth century. I will post more pictures as it begins to grow.

I like your fireplace!

Thank you for commenting on this and not my filthy table cloth. Almost every house around here, grand or small has a fire place almost the same as this, Mine was re-built some years back because of a chimney fire but there should also be a bread oven built in at the side. The picture is of the site where I found the rose.

I am the discoverer of "General Vallejo's Yellow Banksiae" Rose and am trying to determine how broadly it is distributed anywhere in the world.
I authored an article detailing its features in the February, 2017 issue of The Rose Letter, Vol. 41, No. 1, pp.6-8. In summary the distinguishing characters are flowers yellow with ca. 75 petals per flower and a diameter of 4.4 cm. with a pedicel ca. 6.5 cm long. So this is larger than the Rosa Banksiae lutea with ca. 40 petals per flower and a diameter of 3.3 cm. with a pedicel ca. 4.2 cm. long. Please contact me if you find this rose with its location: Thanks for your help.
