'Jane Kendall' is another rambler from 'Thornfree Wonder'. Bred in 1984 it has lavender pink flowers with a white centre, six to seven blooms per cluster and flowers in spring and early summer. The blooms have incurved petals and gold stamens. it is a strong growing, thornless rambler with mid green. I thought that this rose was a forgotten beauty until I went to Ken's planting at Te Kauwhata, where I discovered a rose which matches the description.
