Is there a source for the 'real' thing in Europe? By 'real' I mean the remontant one pictured and described in the 'Noisette Roses: Nineteenth-Century Charleston's Gift to the World' book and common in the Southern US? The one commonly sold in Europe (e.g. by Beales) is a non-repeating rambler type rose.

The Champneys commonly sold in Europe is a tall climber with flowers more double, darker and larger than Blush Noisette, it is also once flowering. The foliage doesn't match original descriptions (Many found in Dickersons book ie Less double than Blush Noisette, very pale pink and heavily clustering. 5 to 7 oval acute leaflets, narrower and longer than the leaflets of blush noisette). There are various reports of this rose being remontant and others, non remontant. I would guess that the rose was probably remontant with a background of 2 remontant roses and the excitement of the introduction. A found rose we have recently obtained has a probability of being correct, it appears the same as the rose at San Jose Heritage Rose Garden.

A couple of expert rosarians have told me that all the plants they've seen labelled Champneys' Pink Cluster in Australia have been Blush Noisette. Still looking to see if we have the real thing here.

Some nurserys seem to sell the rose "blush noisette" under this name.
The vareiaty we grow and which our photo shows is once flowering and grows up to 5 meters high. am i right in this oppinion ?

Apparently many cataloques did refer to Champneys Pink Cluster as Blush Noisette and the mistake continues. As you have mentioned, Champneys does grow very tall and only flowers once. But the flowers are different then Blush Noisette as they are usually double and well shaped. Blush Noisette is only semi double with wider petals and makes a nice lax shrub. However, given time it too will grow into a climber. Photo is of Blush Noisette

Thanks a lot for your answer, now i am sure to tell the truth. Perhaps i will write to HMF
to take away the Blush noisette photos from the Champneys -site.
