Hi. Any ideas on this rose. It's deep maroon colour, single, fragrant and repeat flowers. Many thanks.

Very pretty, but I can't name her. The more you can tell about it the more likely you'll get an ID. Does it rebloom, when was it planted (or other history), does it lose its leaves in winter, etc?

Could your mystery rose be Amy Robsart?

no, its not a climber. Definitely a bush rose - but the flower looks very, very similar - but perhaps a little deeper in colour. Petal formation is the same

Reminds me of Rose (Rosa 'Burgundy Iceberg')

Scroll down for additional images.
Still all kinds of other options though.

I did check Burgundy iceberg - but the flowers are smaller.
