Hi, Is any one able to help with comments on this rose. I am not completely convinced that it is Aglaia. All map references for this garden have it listed as Aglaia. It has always been vigorous and has to regularly be pruned off the grass from its rambling habit. I think it has been white from the bud and not faded but my memories of it could be wrong.

What I grow as Aglaia is a found rose: it's definitely yellower than your photos in its early stages. But thornless it definitely isn't. So I'm not sure what I have. But Jedmar's photo shows the vicious prickles.

Nadene, read the comments for ‘Sander’s White Rambler’. Your rose may be the one I saw in a rambler clump at Melville’s Nursery, W.A., and as well in the south island of New Zealand.

Nadene, if you want the yellow rambler, I can start a cutting for you.

Nadene,how did you get on with this rose? I note the Rex Hazlewood garden is listing ‘Aglaia’.

Hi Patricia, I haven't made much progress with this rose. I have had to put it on hold while finishing the other Gardens to meet timeframes. I aim to put more work into this garden very soon. Its a pretty little rose and look forward to chasing it up again. Thanks, Nadene

I am quite sure it is not ‘Aglaia’ and therefore I have made a new file for it called “Hazlewood SG 59 C05”. if you lose track of these unknown roses, just look up the appropriate garden’s list of roses

Peter Beales states in his "Classic Roses" that the stems of Aglaia are almost thornless (page 263 in the 1997 edition). If so, our foundling (which is also sold incorrectly in Australia as Thisbe) isn't that.

I still think our foundling is 'Aglaia' Margaret. I have downloaded the 1975 reference which says "ripping thorns" and The Old Rose Adventurer page 356 quotes an 1896 reference which says "a small number of short thorns"

Ripping thorns is right!

Could someone who grows this rose confirm that it "blooms in flushes throughout the season"? We have a spring-blooming foundling which appears similar (and is not Goldfinch because it has vicious prickles).

Yes, you're right to question whether this rose repeats. According to Vintage Gardens, it does not.
