My friend in TX is growing this rose and I absolutely love it... the color and the number of petals is sooooo pretty. She doesn't know the name because it was a gift.

Can anyone tell me what it is?? I'd love to have one!

I hate losing plants....I know they are "just plants" but when you nurse them along and baby them and get them to grow, bloom, and be pretty and they die....it's like losing a friend..... Crying

Looks a bit like St. Christopher.

The color seems to be very close but the St Christopher has too many petals I think.

One of the things I really like about this rose is it's number of petals....I just love the "plainer" roses.

I love single and semi double rose blooms. This one is driving me crazy as the petals appear to have substance. The orange buds and open color is that of Morden Sunrise but it's pedals aren't held like that. Please if you should find out what it is could you let me know the name. In the mean time I shall keep looking.
