Hi Donna, Welcome to the Rose Forum.

The first one strikes me as a distinctive rose because of its striping. Also because its canes seem to lack prickles there is a kind of grace to the way it carries its flowers on slender stems that is a little too rare among HT roses. I cannot recall having seen a rose like this before in a garden or in photos. So I can be of no help in identifying it. I hope you can get it through black spot season: I use Actinovate SP which I buy online.

I think I found the first ones identity!.... Rainbow Striped Tea Rose

I searched my rose purchasing records found the name and looked it up on google. I have found others that match this rose.

I am now going back another year to see if I have recorded the identity of the second... Crossing Fingers!

Do you have the nursery's name? The reason I ask is that we have a rose called 'Rainbow' in our database that is a striped tea rose. Is it possible that the name you have is a combination of the cultivar name and a description?

Rose (Rosa 'Rainbow')

It's available from several nurseries, so if the name of your nursery matches one of the names on HMF.com, we'll know it's 'Rainbow.'

I purchased this rose on ebay all I know is the seller is still selling roses on there under the id of longagoroses. I purchased this rose back in 2016 as a starter rose. I have a thing for stripped roses and many others...roses are like potato chips, you can't have just one.

I do believe it may be the same rose.

found a website am wondering if its the same person who is selling on ebay they do have the "rainbow rose and it is the same pic they used in the listing and does look like my rose.....this could be the nursery it's from. I also found the name of the second rose I remembered the name it is "Peppermint china"

Donna ...

Linda, the owner of Long Ago Roses, runs an excellent operation. The quality of her plants are generally very good. I wouldn't hesitate to purchase roses from her, if I were in the market.

As for 'Rainbow', it does grow better when it is a budded rose, but it can grow into a solid plant as an own root rose. It takes a long time for this rose to "get it's feet under it" and then it's a solid rose.

Most people hate to do what this rose needs in its first years in the garden to help it along because the blooms are so beautiful. If you don't allow the rose to bloom for at least two years, it will put its plant energy into growing roots and plant. That investment pays off big time.

It takes a lot of plant energy to create and maintain blooms. It's normal for this rose to have spindly growth while it is a juvenile rose, but once it's happy, the canes get thicker and stronger and it's a beautiful rose.
I'd rather weed than dust ... the weeds stay gone longer.

Yes, 'Rainbow' is sold by Long Ago Roses, so that's your rose. Long Ago Roses also sells 'Peppermint China,' so I've created an entry for that one in the database. Please add your photos to the two entries.

Rose (Rosa 'Peppermint China')
