I am trying to put a name to a climbing plant I saw growing over a fence in Spean Bridge, Scotland. The blossom was a very pale lilac on the outside, very pale yellow in the centre - looked like a double rose, cup shaped, about 1.5/2 inches across, beautiful light purfume. Incredibly spiny stems and 9 small leaves whereas a rose has 5
