Goldfinch has a very lovely scent and suits well to let it grow into an arch to sit underneath. It has nearly no thorns, grows slow and is so far disease-free.
In my garden it has sun whole day. It only blooms once...but I cannot have it all.

Stan named this rose for it's butter colored buds that open to creammy 2 inch blossoms with 24 petals and a light scent. It is probably a spinosissima, or scotch briar. It has 6 to 8 fett arching canes and tiny dark hips

Further searching and help from a rose collector has led me to more properly identify this as "Goldfinch," a multiflora hybrid from England bred in 1907 by George Paul. It is classed as a Polyantha climber or rambler.
