The closest rose description I've found so far is 'Snowstorm' by one of the 'Pauls' at Waltham cross

Looks like a better idea than Cascadia, so far.

I have only seen this rose in photos, and not personally grown it. What characteristics would distinguish this from pure Rosa multiflora? From the blooms and leaf stipules it looks superficially similar, but I presume that there are some characteristics that clearly separate them. Any thoughts from those who have personal experience with the rose?

Continuous bloom from spring till first frost. Thorny stems. Stems are strong, so the rose can form a high bush up to 10 feet. Healthy darkish foliage. No mildew or blackspot. Non invasive. No suckering. No low lying branches on the ground that may root. Flowers slightly larger and slightly more filled than multiflora.

In my garden in central CA, this rose has no scent at all and only blooms in the spring with a small repeat flush in late summer. It's now in its 4th summer.

Are you located inland or on the coast? My "Darlow's Enigma" is in bloom right now, but up in Sonoma County, we have both hot summers and cool nights caused by the coastal influence.

For the person who says "no scent", please cut some Darla's Enigma when a spray is first opening and take it inside for the rest of the spray to open -- you'll be amazed how much scent there is on this rose as a cut flower.
