I put this on another rose message board but didn't get any responses. I'm hoping some of you here can give me some suggestions. Just guesses will be good.
I've had this rose for several years and have never given it much care. I've not been into roses for several years. I don't remember where I got it, when I got it and definitely don't remember it's name. I'd love to have more since it does so well w/o very much care. It blooms on and off from spring until frost. I'm hoping my picture will help but I'm not an expert at photographyThumb of 2012-07-13/dixiedumplin/33b544 Thumb of 2012-07-13/dixiedumplin/1e358a Thumb of 2012-07-13/dixiedumplin/f79f49

oh boy. uh, purdy? Does that count? LOL!

Zuzu, Sue, Steve, PPal, & Cindi would be a gazillion times more helpful than I. I suck at climbers. Can you give us a little more info? Thorns, scent? Do you remember approximately where you bought it (big box store versus a mom&pop store)? The 3rd picture of the nighttime shot is very helpful as it shows the lighter-green leaves that are shiny rather than darker green or leathery looking. I'm hazarding a guess that it's a floribunda type.. maybe Don Juan? No, DJ has much darker leaves. America shows more red than this brighter red/orange color. There's a form of Blaze... maybe it's just Blaze? HMF shows the same coloring picture: http://www.helpmefind.com/rose/l.php?l=21.167865 but claims darker leathery leaves.

Experts? Blaze Improved? I'm leaning more towards Blaze Improved... been around since the 50s, very commonly found everywhere, constant blooms rather than in flushes..

My monitor shows it as a coral-red. Based on that, my guess would be Blaze of Glory.
Does that ring any bells for you?
The corals, oranges and lighter reds vary so much depending on how much sun in on the bloom and what is around it. Mine looks much more coral because of the brick color behind it. I've seen it look almost orange in a botanical garden with nothing but roses around it.
Remember that children, marriages, and flower gardens reflect the kind of care they get.

The blooms on Blaze of Glory have a different shape and they appear to have fewer petals than the blooms on Dixiedumplin's rose. Besides, Blaze of Glory wasn't available until 2005, and this rose might be older.

Rose (Rosa 'Blaze of Glory')

I see the coral tone, Cindi, and if Camelot were a climber, that would be one of my guesses. I suspect it's an orange large-flowered climber.

I could believe Blaze. It looks like mine, and it has always been widely available.

I don't see the coral; it looks like a true red to me. I think we need more information. Come back Dixiedumplin!

Blaze is always my first guess for any red climber. It does look like Blaze, but Blaze is redder and tends to photograph bluer if the camera isn't capturing the color correctly.

There appears to be no coral or orange in it here. I would say it's a true red. I can't remember if I bought it somewhere like Lowe's, a local perennial nursery or ordered it. I went through a phase of ordering some various kinds (which have all bit the dust or been given away) several years ago. Blaze sounds like it would be something a local perennial nursery might have. If any of you think that Blaze would be a good, low-maintenance rose I can try to find it. Will I need to wait until next spring ? Someone asked if it has thorns. YES, it does but not any worse than others I've had.

Thanks all for helping. If you have any other ideas or suggestions, I'm all ears!
