Your guess is as good as mine. Might have told you before but will reiterate. I found it growing in Green E Plants driveway covered in weeds. I was amazed at how well it was growing despite no water,sprays or any other care.
Klaus and Brigette told me it was bred by someone who never registered it and they didn't know what it's breeding was. It is super tough and makes a lot hips. Colour is pink and the bloom is a little open.

It's my sort of very healthy bushy rose and am going to try breeding it as a seed parent. The seedlings you have are open pollinated. My seedlings from it were from singles right through to very full blooms.

There is another rose here that is so tough it will grow in the centre of a bitumin road. I found it beside Old Northern Road Dural and have given it a study name of Com Red ( Short for commercial Red ) It's a HT and the blooms last longer than any other rose I have tested in a vase. All it's seedlings are red but last year I ended up with a pink.

Sorry, nothing further to report.
