I was pulling weeds that grow here & there in the gutter by the street & just couldn't believe that a tiny little rose plant had struggled up through cracks in asphalt & managed to get itself a pretty healthy-looking start! No idea what rose it is & really don't care….it's awesome whatever it is. I soaked the dirt in the asphalt crack & very gently worked the little rose free, with no broken roots, that I can see . I'm going to baby it & hope it does well. It deserves to. What a determined little rose! Thumbs up Crossing Fingers!

I agree It might even be a seedling from your ZD! Keep us posted.
