What size are the blooms? It reminds me of Dorothy Perkins, a once-bloomer with small blooms in large clusters, no fragrance, and a horrible habit of developing powdery mildew.

It's a climber, but it will spread out horizontally if it has nothing to climb.

Well, it can't be Dorothy with blooms that large. Dorothy's are about half that size. The search continues. Smiling

It looks like a hybrid wichurana, but a search for a pink hybrid wichurana on HMF brought up 11 pages, many without photos, so I couldn't find anything definitive there.

I'm trying to think of roses that grow wild in Northern California. What about De la Grifferaie? It's growing wild all over the place. It's a once-bloomer with a medium-sized bloom, but it has a strong scent.
