It has to be an old cemetery that's not being much looked after. The new ones are all perpetual care with everything flush with the ground so they can be mowed easily. Some times the roses get removed from the older cemeteries to make it easier to take care of them. The Eglantine hybrid has since been removed from the cemetery I found it in, which was a shame since it was 10 feet across. But, I gave a large plant of it to a local nursery that sells local own root found roses. I do my very best to take cuttings that won't be noticed and won't take one from a struggling rose.
I used to know a lot of rose rustlers from Texas - there's some good places to rustle from somewhere down there.
