A Seedling of Mine I Find Promising

I did not breed this rose, just selected it from open pollinated seedlings from seeds from an open pollinated seedling of the rambler 'Francis E. Lester'. It is remontant, fast growing, and has a potent sharp/sweet Multiflora scent that reminds me of both 'Seagull' and 'Bobbie James'. It appears to be a Polyantha type shrub rose that reminds me somewhat of 'Gourmet Popcorn' though it has a VERY faint touch of pink to it. I like the idea of crossing it with Teas plus 'Oklahoma', "Fairmount Red" plus some English Roses like 'Abraham Darby' and 'Heritage'. It sure is a cute little bugger! John
