I am trying to find an old white climbing rose that I remember from my childhood in Nicosia, Cyprus. It must have been planted in the early 1900's and its blossoms were very large and very fragrant and the petals were quite thick and reminded me of paper. It had beautiful egg-yolk yellow stamens. It was very hardy and had climbed and thrived on top of the tiled roof. A rose that reminds me of this white rose is a new rose called "Princess of Monaco" which is not a white rose. But the texture of the blooms and the their shape and the sort of fragrance are very similar to the one I am looking for. I will appreciate any suggestions.
