|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.

and has almost everything you describe for Dorothy Perkins
but i have never seen the mildew ?

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

|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.
Rose (Rosa 'De la Grifferaie')
