This was sold to me as Grace Note, which is pink. I've had it for three or four years and it has never put out a pink bloom, just these yellowish buff ones. It does appear to be a Buck shrub, however. The Buck roses in my garden are always riddled with black spot, so they're easy to spot (pun intended). Rolling on the floor laughing

It's a soft and beautiful coloring at least.

Zuzu, I think we must have purchased the same rose at the same place at the same time. I ordered Grace Note from Chamblee's, and my blooms look exactly like yours. The bush is a great performer, always covered with blooms... but it's not Grace Note. I wrote to Mark Chamblee last year to ask if he could identify what they had sent. He identified the rose as Folksinger from the photos I sent. Chamblee's also offered Folksinger at the time that I purchased my rose. The rose also resembles Pearlie Mae, but my bush tops out at about four feet... which fits the size profile for Folksinger rather than Pearlie Mae.

Ha, I think she actually figured it out herself as both images are already in the database! Thumbs up

I know you're right, Evey, because it looks just like my correctly labeled Folksinger. Unfortunately, that's probably my least favorite Buck rose. I've mentioned in other threads that Folksinger grows well and blooms well, but doesn't really make much of an impact in the landscape. I wish it had been Pearlie Mae. I wouldn't mind having two of those because there's more color variation. Actually, I guess I really wish it had been Grace Note, which is what I ordered. Angry

Here's something interesting. After looking at photos of Grace Note, I'm wondering whether it's the rose Heirloom Roses sold me as September Song. Hilarious!

Hmmm, that looks like the rose I bought from Chamblee that was supposed to be Winter Sunset.
