First rose - red blend with white markings, hint of yellow on reverse, scented (I'm not good in describing scents).
That's all I can tell you as I found this as a nursery special early last month (tiny plant in a gallon container) for $6. It looked like an own-root rose. No labels, no names, nothing at all. They had tons of them all with no names. This one had a singe bloom then so I bought it. Now it's growing rapidly and been blooming non-stop.

2nd rose - a rescue, formerely from my Mom's garden. Always thought it is Jacob's Coat but now I don't think so.
Photos below were taken last spring. After that there were only a couple blooms and that's it. But it's shooting out canes right now to as much as about 10 feet. I know some climbers alternate sending out canes and flowering every other year, so maybe that's the case.

Toni - I'm with you on rose #1. I was thinking Scentimental too.

But rose #2 is a climber. The only climbing 'Mardi Gras' listed in HMF is described as dark red (no photos).
If you're thinking of floribunda Mardi Gras (2007), no it's not. I got that one too.

Your mother's climber looks like Talisman to me. Unfortunately, the photos in HMF are deceptively dark. The Talisman in my neighbor's garden looks like your mother's. The 10-foot canes are quite common on Talisman. In fact, that's why I'm not growing it in my garden. It gets absolutely huge and throws those long canes in all directions.

Incidentally, there's a Joseph's Coat and a Jacob's Robe, but no Jacob's Coat.

There's a good photo of Talisman about halfway down this page:

Oh Zuzu, you Queen of Roses! You just identified my mystery climber. Too bad it's a once-blooming rose, but the blooms are worth waiting for. I really don't mind the long canes as I'm trying to creare a privacy 'rose screen' for the backyard as you can see from the photo below.

Regarding 'Jacob's Coat', LOL, I really meant Joseph's Coat as I planted that one this year too and that's when I discovered that my mystery climber is not really Joseph's Coat which I though it was. I was considering Jacob's Robe before too.Thumb of 2010-08-14/Tex68/bf827d
