[From "California's oldest surviving roses", by Darrell Schramm]
On his own estate, Hosp grew many Cecile Brunner polyantha roses. Hosp discovered an unusually long wand of fl owers that had sported from one of his many shrubs, and introduced Climbing Cecile Brunner to the public in 1894. Nearly thornless, with light pink flowers, this plant exhibits clusters of small, exquisitely shaped blossoms that exude a sweet scent. This form of the so-called “Sweetheart Rose”, one of the four surviving California roses from the 19th century, remains popular today. A long-lived rose, it will grow to gigantic heights.

Mile Cécile Brunner, Climbing. Hosp, U.S., 1894. This occurred as a sport from the original bush form in California. It is a vigorous, handsome, leafy plant, somewhat larger in leaf and flower than the bush, and will reach 20 feet in height on wall or tree. (The original bush form is described in the preceding section.) A fine plant in the University Botanic Garden at Oxford annually covers itself with hundreds of flowers of the same exquisite shape as the original, but rather richer in colouring. Each bloom is like a miniature Hybrid Tea Rose, of a size to go in a thimble, of clear pink, deeper in the fully double centre. Unfortunately the climbing form flowers only very sparsely after midsummer.  Sweetly fragrant.
It is worth recording that a plant of this was sent to the Royal Horticultural Society's garden at Wisley some years ago; the plant came from Malta, where it is prized commercially and is known as Fitenis Rose. It has also been distributed as 'Climbing Bloomfield Abundance'.
