I inherited a few roses from Mrs. J when I purchased my house in 2004. I was hoping someone could help me ID this deep pink HT. The house was build in 1960. The rose was budded, but has gone own root.
After being severly deer pruned for about a decade, it has recovered fairly well ... I am still working on it.
Plant habit: The plant is somewhat wide and is not as tall as 'Tiffany', which is located in the left of this photo:
Bloom color is darker and more cerise than shown in this photos.
Partially open bloom:
Fully open bloom:
The rose has a strong fragrance, thinner petal substance than most HTs and the petals do not drop off cleanly.
I am hoping to post photos to the correct rose page, so any identification assistance is appreciated.
