Found a website for a nursery called "Antique Roses" which does carry this particular variety. Though I decided I have as many roses as I can properly care for, this site has me sorely tempted with its interesting list of old roses. It also has very beautiful photographs!

That website is phony, there is no reply, nothing for sale, and there is a discussion about this on various garden websites. All the photos on tht site have been stolen without permission from HMF member's photos. it is believed the website exists as a phishing-for-credit card numbers scam....

Initial post yesterday by Give me caffeine
Found an unidentified rose yesterday. The only extra information about the bush is that it grows near where the woman who runs the cafe lives. I forgot to ask about growth habit (yes, will ask).

However, I think it is likely to be a sizeable bush. Her comment makes me think it's protruding past the property boundary and she just nicked some, or it possibly has gone feral in a paddock.

So probably a fairly decent size, and durable on its own in the subtropics.

There is a distinct and very pleasant rose scent, with sugary/sweet notes but not at all sickly. Not a "pong out the whole room" scent, but very noticeable once you get close.

Blooms in clusters. Blooms are approximately 45 mm in diameter. Petals have a bit of a white centre once you open a bloom up. Stamens are very short and a nondescript brown.

Prickles are small (around 6mm) and hooked, at least on the cut arrangement I saw yesterday. Forgot to ask about the base of the canes. Quite sparse.

Any suggestions for what to start searching?

My kneejerk reaction was Paul's Scarlet, which does repeat a bit, and is a survivor. Not known for scent, but worth looking at. Marie Nabonnand has much better scent but is mostly thornless, and hasn't been around in Aus as long. Its buds may help distinguish it.

Paul's Scarlet definitely looks similar.

The buds on this mystery rose are almost spherical. Well at least, the one bud I happen to have at the moment is. That one's quite green though, so I should go see the bush itself.
