So, I bought several "body-bag" roses this spring, and all have done surprisingly well, and have been exactly what I expected. I did lost one, but that was unfortunately my fault... however, this one bloomed this morning, and is definitely not what was labeled. I had expected princess de Monaco. I have searched and searched but cannot find an exact match as to what this is. I do t particularly think I like it, but am giving it a chance. Any idea what it is?

This was bought as Dupontii, but it repeats, and the hips are quite different. Musk-type scent. Arching shrub-climber. It has hooked prickles, which I haven't shown well. White single flowers, growing along the branch and in a cluster at the end. Plant on its own roots, doesn't sucker. Photos below were taken in autumn, in South Australia zone 9b. Study name is "Barbara Diesing's rose". Any suggestions?

Hi all, the "adopted grandma" I grew up living next door to was forced into a nursing home a few years ago. She was crazy about her roses, so on a whim, I dig up several of hers before her house sold. I know most of what I took, but I've never been able to figure this one out. It's red, very red and holds it's color much better than all my other red roses. I don't believe it's a Chrysler imperial or me Lincoln, as I have some of both and this always seems to be much smaller and less fragrant, if at all. It's had me stumped for years!

Does anyone know of a multiflora hybrid with a few scattered black thorns?

I have particularly noticed the large, ageing to pitch-black, thorns on a foundling which I believe to be 'Mme. d'Arblay'. This rose had R. multiflora as a seed parent and has fimbriated stipules. This foundling, with photos is on HelpMefind under "Lynne Joyce's Rambler".

Patricia, thank you so much. The photos on HMF match nearly everything I recorded on this rose--the long stemmed clusters, the widely scattered black thorns, the long fringed stipules, the prickles on the reverse of the petiole, etc. The only difference is the color: the rose I saw had its petals margined in pink fading to blush or white. I did check the photos and comments on 'Mme d'Arblay', which occasionally was said to be "flesh-white", which I suppose could be a pale pink. But then the rose I saw was growing in some shade and somewhat sandy soil, which may have affected the color as well.

I saw the plant last month in the old pioneer town of Jacksonville, Oregon in the graveyard of the small, old St. Andrew's church (which contained a variety of old roses).

I'm trying to write an article about that old cemetery rose garden.

A pleasure to help in any way, Darrell. Is your foundling on HelpMefind? Perhaps other people may be able to help further if they see photos. Your words "margined in pink" are valuable.

Sad to say, my photo was not very good--too poor for accuracy--and so I deleted it. I should have taken more, but I was on a schedule and had more to see in that graveyard garden. I guess it requires another trip north.

This is very similar to the rose I grow as 'Russelliana'.

Sorry Andrew, I don't understand. Darrell's foundling is blush white, margined in pink. 'Mme. D'Arblay' is white. 'Russelliana' is purple.

Oh soz, I put the comment in the wrong place.
