"MR1" - Rosa carolina derivative

"MR1" is blooming now. It's parentage is ('Fragrant Cloud' x Rosa carolina) X 'Carefree Sunshine'. It's surprising to me how much it looks like a typical modern shrub rose since it's only 2 crosses away from a wild species, Rosa carolina. Unfortunately it retained the once-blooming habit of that species.
