This is a climbing sport of the ancient 'Old Blush' China, which was first introduced to America in 1752 and reintroduced in 1793. 'Old Blush', also known as 'Parson's Pink China' and Monthly Rose, was one of the first repeat-blooming roses brought to the West, and consequently was very popular in the early 19th century. Considered one of the most garden worthy of the old Chinas, this important cultivar provided part of the parentage of rose hybrids to come.
