I don't think that is a rose, could you get a photo of the whole shrub along with a close-up of the leaves please.

It is definitely a rose Mg, I was staying at this place in France last week, it is a typical rose, with thorns, and I have added another picture. It is on the left of the picture. I brought a piece home to strike, so have taken another picture of a leaf, which I will add in a mo.

Have added picture of leaf, not very good, but may help.

Sorry no idea.

Oh well, thanks anyway Mg.

it looks like a Lady Bank's rose [R.banksiae] but not sure of the spelling or if it is Lady bank's.

I think this is an old fashioned shrub rose? Look at Darlow's Enigma,

Resembles Rosa Filipes Kiftsgate, a rambler, but in England it wouldn't flower much before mid June at the earliest, and often July, but may be earlier in France, I don't know.

Many thanks Joan, Drc726 and Bamboo for answering. I found a David Austin catalogue lastnight and I thought it looked like Kiftsgate, but will look the other two up as well. Many thanks

the only rosa banksia that's white is 'alba flore pleno', which has double flowers - the other varieties, as far as I know, are yellow or pale yellow, although the flowers are similar in form and size, and this is the time of year when they'd be in flower, often end of April/early May.

Thanks Bamboo. I think I will go with Kiftsgate. I'm hoping to get some cuttings going.

Hmm, you might want to think about that - this is a rambler, so only flowers in one major flush in July in this country - it also won't behave itself in that it can't be trained to be flush against a wall - you have to treat it more like a shrub rose, more or less.

OK thanks

We have a wild scented white rose fitting the appearance. It is Rosa moschata. Flowers in springing one flush as described by bamboo, it has heavy armour of small thorns.’U r right bamboo it is very difficult to train.

Thanks AR for your input. I think in view of comments I probably won't bother with it, as I haven't a lot of room for it anyway. Thank you...

Poor wildee can be pruned to fit a small space .It is scented and lovely Cinderella.

Thanks AR. I have got some cuttings going. Will see if they take. Knowing me, I will find room for one if it does.
