rose identification

Could someone tell me the name of this rose, it was given to us but had no name tag, it's thornless and looks as though it will be a climber, I have never seen a rose like it.imageimageimageimage

    The rose that's most like it that I know is Rosa Alexander Hill Gray which is a shrub rose, and there's also a climbing form ... it has very quilled petals, but the ones in your photo do look quite exaggerated.  

    Have a look here and see what you think

  • Had a look at this on line, still not sure, interestingly, I have just re-potted it and it would seem that there are four separate plants, one not as multi-petalled as the other (is that the right term?), I might re-pot them separately as see what I get, still puzzled by the multi-petalled one. 

    Thanks for your help anyway

    Perhaps send a photo to Classic Roses ... they're a real authority on roses ... they may well be able to ID it for you.
