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:

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.

Smiles,
Lyn

The bud reminds me of a Bourbon rose. I love the ruffled edges on the petals! Maybe it's in one of my rose books...give me and excuse to sit and look at pictures. How lucky you are to buy a house with roses.
Remember that children, marriages, and flower gardens reflect the kind of care they get.

Cindi ....

Not many roses. Mrs. J. had these five roses crammed into an 8" bed out in front of the house. I widened the bed to 3' and took out all of the companion plants to give the roses room to grow. Her niece told me that she used to go out every night and cover the roses with bird netting to protect them from the deer. She was in her 90s when I bought the house and couldn't do that for many years, so the deer pruned them regularly. She did love her roses.

Then there are two yellow minis along on side of the back of the house that are not Ralph Moore or Dee Bennett Roses and a wonderful, but neglected 'Tropicana'.

I brought a few roses with me and Sequoia gifted me with about 100 roses as a housewarming gift. Many of those were not heat tolerant enough for this garden, so I gave them away to people who had more shade than I do and kept the rest.

I don't really need to know the name of the rose for myself, but I would like to add photos to the right db page. Please do look.

Smiles,
Lyn
