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

Rosa Cymosa "Rebecca Rushforth"
A selected form in commerce. A distinctive clone with paler leaves found in china. from Springs Hanger cuttings.

I have been given a plant of this clone but still to small to make comparisons.

This is a lower growing Tea, delicate thin foliage very dark new growth and somewhat tender. I have not found anything similar other than perhaps the foliage of Cels Multiflore, the flower though seems very different. It's to early to comment on disease resistance. Found locally here in S.W France, I have not found another occurance.

It's good to see these photos John. A lovely rose.
Does the colour vary greatly from season to season?
Do you know the approx age of the rose you found?

I'm not sure about the variation of the flower but so far not really. The building had been sitting empty for at least 60 years and before that time this was a very poor area so few roses were purchased between then and the turn of the 19/20 century particularly by agricultural workers plants were just handed down or swapped. Of course this is guess work.

How prickly is this rose John?

Hi Billie
Very few prickles which tend to be straight. Just added a pic. not very obvious but not taken for the prickles

Quite similar to "Wood Street Buff Yellow" but John's bloom seems to have a more rounded outline, than the pointed outline of "Wood Street Buff Yellow".

This has similarities to Mme Charles (fineschi) colour wise, also the immature stem leaf colour, but buds are shorter and squatter on Madame LĂ©opold Marchesseau/labatut
