This year, at the nursery, sniffed 4 different bushes tagged this rose. None of them had any scent. Nor did they look like the bushes last year as the blooms were more coral than apricot.

My photo shows Sweet Fragrance flowers as they are fading. They do begin as a coral, orange-pink. I grow this bush no spray and own root. It has always been healthy. This year she produced many full english-type blooms, jam packed with petals, perhaps because of our cooler summer this year. She is listed as a floribunda/grandiflora. Grows like a grandiflora for me, with most flowering at the ends of cane.
