My Grandma Nancy has a rosebush that has been there since forever it seems. It has grown In "shoots" it seems, all along side of her shed. She moved there in the 70's and she was told it had been there decades before that. It literally has shoots/canes sporadically along two sides of the shed. The buds have a unique shape to them holding the closed almost like a clasp. When they bloom they are snow white, and last for 2 days or so and die away...constantly blooming more and more. I have several pics I have taken and I would really really live to find out about this type of rose.

please help if you can

Thank you

Pictures may help to identify it if there are unique characteristics. But there are literally thousand of rose cultivars. It sounds like a type of multiflora rose with its ability to sucker freely. If you send photos we can try and figure it out.
