Thread OP

i recently bought a cabin in the Colorado mountains (elevation 9300 feet). The cabin had been empty for three years and i'm now trying to clean up the landscaping and extend it a bit. Thought it would be the right idea to continue to replicate the existing flowers/plants given the location and elevation. I've got all other flowers/plants matched out (walkers low, artemesia, johnsons blue geraniums, etc.) but am stumped with the single rose. it's certainly hardy having lasted many years here even untended and i was thinking it might be a white prairie rose, white rugosa or darlows enigma but the right choice eludes me.

Hoping that someone here could point me in the right direction so i can add a twin to her here at the cabin. thank you. #stayhealthy

It's a little difficult to see the blooms in your photos, but they don't look single to me. They've got more than 5 petals, if I'm not mistaken.

If so, might this be R. rugosa alba plena?

If I'm wrong, and it really is single, might it be R. rogosa alba?

I don't know, but it may be the same as this guy.

Yours looks like Lyda Rose, David.

The foliage on your rose is completely different from ranflyer's foliage.

I'm pretty sure I have ranflyer's rose; if only I could think if her name...

I agree with Jeri.
It looks like rugosa leaves.
