I've found this rose, bred and registered by David Austin, called Dove 

http://mistydowns.com.au/plant_display/display/334-dove 

 

It doesn't appear on David Austin's English website - has anyone come across it or seen it anywhere please?

It looks lovely - worth trying to track it down. Perhaps email David A. and ask?

No Dove sorry. But the colouring is quite similar to a climber I have called New Dawn. But I expect you want it for the name.

How did you guess

Ive been going to DA's regularly over the last 3 years and have never come across a rose called Dove.  As you say SGL it really does look a lot like New Dawn.  I'd do as Hogweed says and either email or give them a ring.

On a related topic .... there is a beautiful white aquilegia called Dove - i've seen it growing at Wisley and taken a note of the name.  You could have a garden full of Doves

Mistydowns Nursery is in Australia I think. Could that have something to do with 'Dove' rose not being available/known in the UK?

..this is one of the Austin's that did not stand the test of time in this country...a few of his don't and they discontinue them.... probably suffered with too much black spot....or poor growth.... as sometimes happens, some of these do better in hot climates like Australia or California...as this one does, it seems...

I did wonder if that might be the case .... not much point in trying it here then - nothing Antipodean about this garden.  Never mind - it was a nice idea.

I sowed some earlier - nothing yet - maybe in the spring
