We've had 3 seasons of wonderful gardening weather in a row, and I'm discovering growing plants that I thought were dead. This rose appears to be a climber. There's no tag at all, which makes me think it isn't a Weeks or Star rose. It actually does not look like it's grafted. I did a search on our database, and none matched perfectly. The bud is a soft apricot, and the bloom is white with a tiny hint of pink. Mature blooms are 3" wide. Not much scent. The old canes are a good size, like the newer one in the last photo. The smaller cane that wintered over is about 7' long. The new cane has a bud too, so I suppose it blooms on both old and new growth.

I am not too familiar with white climbers, I do grow Rose (Rosa 'Sombreuil')
If that bloom flattens out more as it fully opens, it could be a possibility.
