I have saved a rose . It was at my late MIL house and was dead . I took it home and with lots of tlc have now got one branch , with leaves and a flower . I have no idea what type of rose it is as still small . But it's very pretty with a cream / yellow petals with apricot edges . The only thing I've seen like it is one called ' smile ' . But not convinced it's the same one . Any help would be great as it was planted by my late FIL years ago it means a lot to us .

Welcome! Divvy. I've submitted a suggestion to move your question to the roses forum in case it helps with the ID.

How large was the rose bush before it "died" and how long ago did your father-in-law plant it? If it's a miniature rose, there are several possibilities. If it's a larger bush, Betty Boop, which was introduced 17 years ago and has been popular ever since, is a strong possibility.

Just measuring the size of the bloom should eliminate all of the miniature rose possibilities, Zuzu, because miniature roses are classified by the size of the blooms.

For now, Divvy, take it slow and just work on getting your rose to come back. I'd like to suggest that you don't let the rose put energy into blooming, just new growth right now. By not allowing it to bloom, the plant will put it's energy into growing roots and foliage and becoming a stronger plant.

Looks like you have done a good work bringing it back. We will have plenty of time to help you find an identification when it stronger. Good work. I tip my hat to you.

If small blooms mean miniature roses, many of mine become miniatures in the heat of our summers - seasonal minis!
