Gardeners' Notes:

Positive lancer23 On May 27, 2013, lancer23 from San Francisco, CA wrote:

Grows like a weed. Nice big bush. The flowers do look like Cicile Bunner. Smells great, Cute little bloom that makes up with the huge number of flower per stem. This one is in most old houses' backyard.
Easily propagated by cutting, many successes without using any hormone. I just break a piece of a stem doesn't matter new wood/old wood or semi hard, it just need a little watering now and then in sandy soil(even then I stuck in clay it still root) Have many baby plants that mature rather too fast and start blooming in less then 6 months from start. Once it gets bushy it doesn't need any fertilizer or spraying. Its indeed a carefree rose. Its weakness is iron deficiency will show on leaf with yellow patches and sometimes proliferates in the center of the bloom in the summer. It proliferates every yr a little about 2% of the time rest of the bloom is normal and no mildew or rust or anything. There is a strong perfume like C. B rose. I think B. A got a leg up on C. B because its a bush form and doesn't need to stake or support vs. a climber.

This rose is very likely a sport of 'Cecile Brunner' and may be called 'Spray Cecile Brunner'. The rose that I have was given to me from an old homestead and has never been prpoerly identified. However, with the information that I have gathered, I am convinced that my rose is Bloomfield Abundance. It is a hardy rambler and has a strong "grassy" rose fragrance and will often have 30 or more blooms on a stem or spray. My favorite rose.

Some sources warn that many roses sold as 'Bloomfield Abundance' are in actuality a sport of 'Cecile Brunner' (possibly 'Spray Cecile Brunner')
