Searching for pale pink old garden rose

13 years ago

In 1978 I lived in a house that had some wonderful established rose shrubs, and I'd like to find the variety to plant at my current house. But I don't know how to identify it. It was clearly hardy in New England, a prolific bloomer, pale pink semi-double blooms, dark green glossy leaves, thick green thorns sparsely arranged, and a damask-like fragrance. Just wonderful. It did some re-blooming too, and no suckering. Obviously it was developed well before 1978. Can anyone identify it? Thank you!
