supposedly once flowering pink climbing china, but for us it does repeat. Found by Yuki Mikanagi

From Yuki:

I found the "Qing Yuan Blush China" on my tour to Sichuan with Mr. Mikinori Ogisu in 2003. When we went through a small village, Qing Yuan Xiang (Xiang means village in Chinese), we saw a beautiful climbing rose on stone wall. I asked the driver to stop there, and asked the resident to give me some stems of the rose

Graham Stuart Thomas. CLIMBING ROSES OLD & NEW, published 1965, Aldine Press, Letchworth, Herts.
p.95
'Cooper's Burmese Rose' or 'Cooperi'. Raised about 1931. A plant was received by Mr Courtney Page at the National Rose Society's Trail Ground, then at Haywards Heath, Sussex, from an unrecorded source, and no other plants were traced at Kew or Edinburgh where Mr Cooper's seeds, collected in wild in Burma, were being grown. It grew well on a pillar at Haywards Heath, but used to suffer in cold winters. The leaves are extremely glossy, the flowers single, pure white, and the plant somewhat resembles R. laevigata. An interesting undetermined rose suitable for a sheltered wall.

I would like very much to find out more information about a garden in Haywards Heath called Earldom (as in the rose 'Earldomensis' a pteracantha hybrid). My parents lived in the town over thirty years and I grew-up there. It was from 1915 (I think) until just after his death in 1948 the home of The Royal National Rose Society's rose garden and trial ground and the private home of Mr Courtney Page and his wife, members since 1892. Situated on the Lewes Road in Haywards Heath. I still have relatives in the town and often go back and have unsuccessfully looked for the house on several occasions. One of the most expensive roads in town with many substantial houses and big gardens, I guess that name may have been changed during the last 70 years. I contacted the local horticultural society but they couldn't help and now the R.N.R.S. is defunct I have come to a dead end.
