This is a once blooming single pink rose. I've had it for years, but only in the last two has it really come into its own.

I see that I've lost a lot of resolution through copying. If anyone would like a better picture, I can get it in a week when we go back to our summer place.

TIA

It's really difficult to see in these photos and clicking on them only makes them smaller. If possible, could we please see a sharper image of the bloom and of the foliage? How big are the blooms? Are they typically in small clusters or large ones?

Did someone buy this rose or has it always been there? I ask because if there's a possibility that it's a species or wild rose, the arching habit reminds me of many multifloras, such as this one:

Thanks, ZuZu, I'll get new pictures and answer your questions next Friday. But to answer one now, they typically are single blooms alone, not in clusters. That's what makes the habit unusual to me. Sometimes they are in clusters of one or two.

Zuzu, I should also have said that I'm pretty sure I purchased this from Hortico, but over 12 years ago. I went to the Hortico web site, but didn't find anything that seemed to match. It's definitely a purchased rose.

Would you remember the name if you heard it? Do you remember buying Meg, by any chance? It's a short climber Hortico has always carried and it has a sparse second flush of blooms, but only in locations with a long growing season. The blooms are single to semi-double and usually are not in clusters. HMF calls it an apricot blend, but it's most often a peachy pink.

I do think I would remember the name, and a Meg rose doesn't sound at all familiar. I don't think it's a climber. I'm sure it's a bush. For one thing I wouldn't have purchased a climber for that situation, and for another I've only purchased 4 climbers in my life. It's a very big bushy bush. Those long branches reach up at least 8 feet. That may give it the look of a climber, but that's new since we cut the bush back two years ago.

Hello, all, I have replaced the fotos with some of somewhat better quality. Let me know if you want more fotos.

Here is a photo of the burgeoning rose hips and how they are attached. The flowers were almost all gone when we returned to Maine, so it doesn't have a long blooming season.

The hips and foliage look so much like those of Dortmund, a hybrid kordesii shrub, that I did a search for a pink hybrid kordesii. Most have too many petals to be yours, but what about Royal Edward?

Thanks for your continuing efforts, but not, I'm sure I've never purchased a Royal Edward. This is becoming quite a mystery. I was so sure it was a common rose that lots of folks would recognize!!

Many thanks!!!

Could it be the Dog Rose or one of the Caninas? Or, perhaps, Eglantine? Or are they all too thorny?

The flowers look like Ballerina, but there are lots of roses with blooms that look like Ballerina.

How about VA Pasture Rose? There is also a domestic one called Nearly Wild that looks a lot like yours. However it blooms all season here in the central midwest.

Melva, your picture is darling. How does it feel to have a butterfly sitting on the end of your nose? I'm not a big fan of butterflies since they are preceeded by worms which eat my plants. I know, bad, bad me.

As I recall, it was a very fleeting thing...my friend happened to have the camera in her hand. It was a very hot day, the flutter bye was drinking my sweat. Nothing fanciful about it!

Melva, love the picture. How ya doing girl? I've got 6 more days til I head for Calif. I've put aside 9 of your roses that are traveling with me. I told my son that I was buying 10 more from you in Sept and he says he'll help me get the pots necessary to keep them in.
