Your rose is lovely! The more you can tell us about it, the more likely some will be able to ID it. When was it purchased, when does it bloom, does it have a scent, thorns, etc. Anything you can think of.

Thank you @porkpal. this was actually at the house when we bought it last year. We moved into the house in August and I remember it blooming all the way to early winter. It hasn't bloomed yet this year, but is about to. I pruned it in spring. I won't be able to find out about the fragrance till it blooms this year, but here's what it looks like now. Hope this helps.

I'm guessing Sunsprite, because of how late in the year it continues to bloom.
Next guess?

Thank You! Cindi.You might have saved a few Sunsprite roses in my own garden from the shovel. I tip my hat to you.
I have evidently not been lavishing upon them the kind of care they need. Starting the second week in June mine bloom until mid June. If a Sunsprite could look like that, maybe the two or three I have warrant renewed attention. I've spent the last several years feeling mystified at the rose's high ARS rating.
When you dance with nature, try not to step on her toes.
