Back in May, I found this rose on sale. It had several blooms and looked so happy and healthy. The 5-gallon pot it was in had no label, just the price $12 so I snatched it. Big Grin

I put it in the grownd, next to a fence and I have to say that it hasn't been doing that well. The unusually hot summer did a number on my roses but this one seemed to be particularly affected. However, I don't know if it was heat stress or the bush just didn't like the location. It's still n that spot and looking better but nothing like it was when I brought it home, even though I've given it the same care as my other rose bushes.

What it looked like about a month after I put it in the ground. The blooms on this bush have several shades of pink and coral-pink.

And what it looks like today. Those leaves don't look good and I have no idea why.

I suspect it dislikes that location. The reflected heat from the fence may be intense.

I see. I will move it and see what happens.

Do you recognize the cultivar?

I agree with porkpal, it might do better if you pot it up in good potting soil and grow it up a bit. I'd move it to another location see what suits the rose It does look a bit baked. I would also double check drainage. I live in a very sandy location and when a rose fails to thrive in my case it usually because the sand doesn't hold water. I would also rub the bottoms of the leaves to chech for mites. If it feels sandy it's likely fras, spraying the rose with water can help if this is the case. Though I would do it early in the day so it has time to dry.

The rose looks a bit like Oso easy Paprika. I think it may be closely related but not quite.

Thanks, Rebekah.

I just did a quick search on that name and the photos I saw showed very orangy blooms that tend to fade as they age. My rose starts with a dark pink (almost magenta) and fades to the pale pink you see in the bottom photo.

(BTW, I just saw a video of Oso Easy Italian Ice and now I must find that cultivar. Lovey dubby Lovey dubby Lovey dubby )

Reminds me of Rose (Rosa 'Watercolors Home Run') but there are others with similar looking blooms and cultural variables; heat, humidity, etc. can make them hard to ID

I think Sue has it. I have Watercolors HR and it looks very much like your rose.

Except that the mystery rose gets lighter with age and Home Run darkens.

Not mine. Mine fades out a lot as it ages.

_BIeu_ I like the oso easy rose collection myself, I have Paprika, Cherry Pie, Pink Cupcake and Honey Bun. They are smaller shrub roses and I have enjoyed them all. I will say they were bred for for disease resistance and not for fragrance and almost always covered in bloom Smiling At least in my zone 8b they have done really well.
