That’s what I was thinking Meadow, thanks

Has it come from below the graft, as Meadowland says looks like a wild one.

Hmmm probably Siris, good thinking as I’ve never had a rugosa Alba

Looks like rosa pimpinellifolia..the scotsrose. Hm...wonder if that might be a parent of Canary bird, and its reverted?

Apparently, xanthina ‘Canary Bird’ belongs to the pimpinella group, but its parentage is unknown.

“To complicate matters, Modern Roses 12 lists R. xanthina spontanea as a synonym of 'Canary Bird.' 'Canary Bird' is a seedling of unknown parentage, at most a selection of the species but more likely a hybrid, because it was introduced in 1911, before R. xanthina was known to have flowered in 1915 in an American botanical garden.”

Thanks ladies. I'll get down and look at the root stock and see what's going on. Interesting.

I've removed it! The root stock had taken over completely so it had to go.

Ah...probably for the best then Dawn. Could you move it into the wilder area?
