I don't think so Barbara.

I might have to do a backflip on this one. I now think this has to be Old Blush. What threw me off is that your rose is obviously growing under much cooler and moister conditions than I have here. It may be a different clone to mine, or just variation due to location and soil.
At first glance I thought it might be Archduke Charles but that rose has a more upright growth generally and can grow fairly tall (well over 1 metre). If it stays fairly small (around a metre or under) like it is now it can only be Old Blush. Sorry I can't be more specific.
Some people think that Parson's Pink and Old Blush may vary slightly, so this is another thing to consider. They were too different introductions of apparently the same rose, so it is possible that the two clones differed a bit. One is said to be a slightly more robust form than the other, but I can't remember which is which now. Sometimes it can come down to splitting hairs.
OzRoz PM'd me some more photos. Now that the bloom has opened a bit more it looks fairly good for Old Blush as well.
I asked Margaret to take a look but unfortunately she is no longer a forum member.

Ian

The colour is definately not right in the photo (The flower is usually pinker) than shown in my photo and the shrub, despite being in warm and wet conditions, has never grown past 600 mm high.

Ah, in that case it is probably Old Blush. Digital cameras do strange things to flower colours at times. Smile

Thanks, Ian. Smile It's turned cold here at nights mostly so the colours are a little different too.
This bush is one of the few bushes in that area of the garden (the area I will be revamping) that has actually done alright despite being drowned in the native grass and hoppers etc etc. Its blooming in flushes all year also helps on the ID front as I gather 'Old Blush' is reliably like that.
It's interesting to note that the only 2 bushes really doing well in that part of the garden are the 2 Chinas.... 'Mutabilis' is in that same row and despite being trimmed lower down by rabbits is doing well. Cecile Brunner was doing well but she's had a setback the last 6 mths.

AutumnDamask,
your photos look like my Old Blush. My plant is also only about 600mm high and quite spindly. It doesn't have many leaves or flowers just now because it's been cold and wet. Mine will have originated either from Golden Vale or Misty Downs.

Autumn Damask, I find Cecile Brunner difficult where I am. I'm not sure why, but I notice that she seems to like a bit more water than other Chinas.

That's interesting.. I was wondering if she'd had *too much* water as her leaves had a yellowing edge.
At the old house (on same property) there is a Cecile Brunner that is 60 yrs+. It was huge until a gardening cousin decided to hack (!!) it back in April a few years ago from 8 foot high to about 4ft.... I nearly died (and nearly strangled the "qualified gardening expert") Thankfully it recovered and is doing fine now. If we hadn't of had 2 great wet summers I'd hate to think how it would have gone...

I like the flower, but the plant can be hit by a bit of PM now and then
