Actually it is what we call roadside roses. Light pink mini roses. Also a clemitis(sp?) Pretty in the early spring/summer!

Which is the lowest temperature it survives at ? I live in France.

Lucinda, Check out the link in the first post, it leads you to the Plants Database. There it will tell you all that info. Since I don't know what your zone is, it'd be easier if you check out the link. Maybe we can work out a trade...although I have never mailed outside the USA, I could try.
Let me know
