In that rare occasion when it does not ball, it is rather nice rose, fragrance is quite lovely, foliage is rather clean, plant is big boned and rather cooperative. Unfortunately, she is a champion of balling and proliferation, out of 50 or so blooms, maybe 5 open, the rest just rot on the plant, regardless of the weather. Here she has no value whatsoever as a decorative plant.

The images and description of your rose here do not closely resemble the plant that we have in the U.S. under this name; photos from other parts of Europe generally appear to agree with our version as well. Yours looks somewhat more tea-like in foliage, maybe even tea-bourbon, and the flowers of our 'Aennchen von Tharau' do not ball or proliferate like yours do. Have you considered that your rose might actually be misidentified? I would not be entirely shocked if it were actually 'Climbing Souvenir de la Malmaison', or something very similar.

I don't grow SdlM so it is hard to compare. My Aenchen does not resemble a tea rose though, it is also quite hardy and once blooming, height so far seems to be correct as well. Regarding US, you have to take the climate into consideration, over here it is damp and cool in the summer, temps hardly going above +20C when the roses bloom - tends to make many "great" roses feel rather miserable. This one is particularly prone to the weather - I can imagine it could open fine where it is dryer and warmer, but here it is horrible.

2 years later and I am also in doubt if I have a correct rose. I have checked the nurseries here in Europe and it seems that photos vary quite a bit. :/

Blooms balled pretty badly on this one this year, probably because she has very thin petals (and a lot of them), really like a rice paper. Everything that tried to open in the wet and cold weather rotted away, now with more dry and warm spell it seems to open better. Otherwise it is a fairly nice rose, blooms are rather big as well.
