"The Shambles" rose R.O.R. at "The Shambles"

For years we have grown a very happy successful rose with unknown parentage at "The Shambles"
an entry from our website (page on our Heritage Roses)
We have decided to adopt this rose, becuase of its qualities and will attempt to propagate and distribute cuttings grown specimens when we can

THE SHAMBLES ROSE (r.o.r) acquired as incorrectly named (and labelled) PINK CASCADE 
Our rose resembles a China- Tea rose is robust, disease resistance and has beautiful short lasting deep pink single to semi-double flowers in clusters of 3 to 5. This rose flowers freely year around. 
The bush , to about 1 meter height has few thorns. Flower stems are weak. It seems disease free and Low maintenance and very willing to propagate from cutting. 
Original specimen from Mapleton Hardware nursery, stated that "Weeping Pink" was bred at a nursery on Mt Tambourine, parentage unknown,.
The rose grows in our Front Path Garden, South Rose garden, North Rose Garden, and Central Shrub garden.

The only candidates for the name "Pink Cascade" in the literature do not describe roses resembling "The Shambles" rose.
