This is a once a year bloomer. The flowers are double, not very fragrant and the growth habit leans toward climbing by the end of the year. Can anyone help me with a name?

Are the blooms white or is that a blush I detect? What is the diameter of the bloom?

When I search by characteristics for a white rose with no rebloom and a mild scent, the only likely candidates have pink buds rather than the white ones your rose has, but if I change the fragrance criterion to moderate, I see Alba Suaveolens, which could be a match.

I'm posting a picture of a single flower also the hips. The fragrance does not fill the air you have to put your nose to the flower. The flower does have a light pink blush. I came up with R. 'Meiviowit' but I know that it is wrong. Grumbling

Meiviowit is White Eden, which should be reblooming for you.

Rosa Alba Suaveolens it is. White Eden was my bad guess for this rose bush. Thank you for all your help and patience. Thank You!

OK I just noticed this rose does rebloom. Flowers on it in late October and early Nov. I'm so not good with roses, I don't even notice them in my garden half the time. If I look at them too long they belly up and die on me. I am now think it could be Rose White Eden. Here is a picture of the whole plant.

So pretty! Lovey dubby I was going to comment how amazing it was that you had a bushful of true white roses, but even with a bit of blush, they are still so beautiful. MUCH better than my white-for-a-day-then-brown knockout roses that I had. (I never did completely figure out what was wrong with mine so I gave them to my mom and planted daylilies instead, which kicked off my daylily frenzy... Whistling )

I'm glad you seem to have a positive ID for them now...and I'm even happier for you that they are rebloomers! Hurray! Seeing roses all over a bush is exciting, but seeing them repeatedly is even better. Big Grin
