You know how roses don't REALLY show you who they are until after they've been in a relationship with you for 2 years? Well me and this climbing rose made 2 years this spring and I'm in love, but I don't know it's name!!! looked through my orders in my emails and can't figure it out. I know where each order is planted. None of them are this rose.

This mystery rose's charms:
It's very pliable and easy to wrangle
Minimal thorns & they are nice thorns
Disease resistant
Does not mind south Louisiana
Very full/thick/not "see through"
FAST grower

The only downside is it's not really fragrant.

So I planted an almost perfect climber 2 years ago, but I don't know who he or she is Confused

Can any of you figure it out from the pics?

Notice how the laterals are pretty think and so flexible and not very thorny

The blooms are barely pink. From afar they look white, even though in the pics they are light pink. I took the pics at night. In the daytime if you aren't close enough you can barely tell there's pink in them. The leaves and branches and thorns are very similar in touch and texture to Ducher. They are like Ducher but climbers.

Reminds me of cl. Clotilde Soupert, but mine quite fragrant. Does she ever ball?

This is the first time she's ever really bloomed heavily. Before she put out maybe 10 or so blooms. I think some did ball though. I think have a climbing clotilde and her leaves are a slightly more leathery than these. Unless what i think is climbing clotilde on my garage isn't D'Oh!
The one on my garage i planted less than a year ago in a pot from a 4" band. It has never bloomed. I just put it in the ground this spring

Maybe climbing souvenir de la malmaison? She really doesn't have a fragrance unless you stick your nose into a bloom, and I have a sensitive nose so wouldn't discount something fragrant as not fragrant. It's pretty humid here today so a good day to throw off some scent, but still not much is coming from these blooms.

I know i wanted SDLM, but i don't ever remember buying it, & I can't find it in my emails.
