Inheriting somebody elses garden makes it difficult to identify some plants. This lovely little rose shrub pops up on a regular basis, very hardy. Want to dig it up and replant elsewhere so would like to know if anyone has an idea on variety and growth habit please... Thank you so much for your help.

My first thought was gardenia but I'm thinking it's a rose bush now. The spent bloom looks like a rose.

With there being so many roses, identifying them often comes down to actually being able to see, touch and get a good appreciation of the shape and form of the plant. Unless it's something very obvious it's not easy to tell from a photo. You have a wonderful rose garden in the Hamilton Botanic Gardens. Nip down there and have a look; they may have one just like it.

When the buds first open they are tinged with a pink... I am opting for iceberg as it is long flowering and in a sheltered spot and can linger into the early winter with flowers. Almost disease free, not alot of problems so far other than aphids...

Iceberg does usually have at least a little fragrance.

Okay took a large piece with new buds along to the local garden centre and they reckon it is an iceberg the fragrance is very subtle which I could not detect but they did with the new opening buds... so thank you everyone. Roses can be difficult to id... much appreciated...
