Hi everyone! I need help identifying this rose that I purchased. The tag said "Gene Boerner" but I'm doubting that is what this rose is.
It blooms a darker kinf of plum pink? and turns to a mauve/pink color.
Angel Face??
Gene Boerner blooms lighter pink and stays lighter pink and it is a classic pink.
This rose has ruffled petals and doesn't seem to have as many petals as a Gene Boerner. I have photos from when I first brought it home and a new bloom which I know will fade to the mauve pink.
Any help or ideas on what this rose is would be great!
Thank you!

You may want to confirm something like this using Spring blooms. In the middle of Summer, my rose blooms have different shades of color and sizes (smaller).

I do believe I have it figured out. It's a Fragrant Plum rose. It looks exactly as it did last spring. The weather has cooled here in Michigan and my roses are big and beautiful.
This rose looks identical to Fragrant Plum, has a beautiful strong fragrance, the correct number of petals and the color looks just like what I've seen in countless photos!
I also purchase a Fragrant Memory rose from the same store aka Jadis rose.

This rose could also be Sugar Plum. I'm leaning in that direction now.

I've never grown either...but looking at hmf....I think it could be Sugar Plum. What is the fragrance like?

After my yellow Lady Banks bloomed white and I could not return it, I started trying to minimize the chances by making sure there were blooms at buying time or looking to see if the nearby pots looked the same and had the same flower's name. I still managed to get a Nikko Blue Hydrangea that turned out to be a lacecap hydrangea... Oh well, I kept it and now is the biggest one in the garden. But they should put the name on the stems of the plant for us to remove after we buy plants. It is too easy to buy the wrong plant.
