    Help identifying old rambling/climber rose in Scotland

    Hello there, We are trying to identify an old rose which was growing in my uncles garden in Skye (West Scotland, quite far north). It was growing against a house wall, strongly fragrant, a deep red wine colour. The stem was covered in small, hair-like, sticky thorns - there were no large thorns on the bush. It was about 3 or 4 feet high. This was back in the 1960's. The blooms were quite small but full and flowered in the summer for quite a long period. The fragrance was very memorable and very beautiful. Can anyone help identify what this type of rose would be? Thank you in advance! F

    From your description of the sticky hairlike bristles on the canes, it will be a Moss rose.

    How gorgeous! I love moss roses! I actually have mine in containers but im going to try plant them on the ground instead. Are yours receding already? mine are. Also, how long have you had them like that? do they die or just go dormant? thanks. I collected seeds which im planning to plant in later on.
