Hello! I may be asking the impossible...if so, feel free to tell me so! 😉 A good friend in Italy bought a house with this rose already growing there. I love it and wondered if any of you might know its type and name. He said the blooms are quite large.(If you look closely you can see part of his hand) Thanks for any help you can give me!

It seems that roses will become the next detective's training program...well Katy are you ready to start an inquiry with your friend there?. Unfortunately most roses are pink. Not many that large Measurements perhaps ( of bush and blooms)? Is it fragrant?. Is it a bush or a cut cluster from a climber? Is is a once bloomer, or does it bloom permanently ( also in flushes). With 40000 different types of roses in the world, with Italy being in the frontline of many excellent breeders producing new roses each year narrowing down will take time. If we can all provide some imput...then perhaps with your friend meanwhile enjoying la dolce vita there out in his yard ( picture #2 in the back Smiling ) he may willingly want to share the joys of having inherited this rose. Green Grin!

I think I may have solved the ID mystery. I found the Our Lady of Guadalupe Rose and the description and pictures look similar. Unfortunately, all online order sites are sold out and I'm thinking it may no longer be produced. Anyone know that rose?

I don't think that OLoG is the answer of your quest. The blooms in your picture are considerably larger than those described for OLoG (as read in the HMF page). However if you are happy about it there's no reasonwhy you shouldn't try to grow it! Smiling
