Not as many petals as you'd think, tho.
They're opening in a vase on my desk. Granted, it's 80 degrees in my living room, but they'll be fully open by morning.

FRAGRANT!!! Sharp and spicy!

Jeri, what class of rose is this? Or is that not known?

Oh, it is a Tea Rose.

Right now, I'd say it closely resembles Mme. Joseph Schwartz, but it's way early in the process. :-)

My type of rose: peachy pink, and smelly. Thanks for posting, Jeri.

I like peachy pinks, too, but in my hot climate they instantly fade to buff, cream, white, etc.

Very cool, Jeri, and very pretty. You now have a genuine Florida rose. So exciting!! Can't wait to find out who you think she really is.

I have Mme. Joseph, but mine has never bloomed that deep peach. For some reason, mine has never been a particularly happy plant. I suspect too much sun. In it's location, it gets no relief from the Fl sun.

I have 2 of 'Dolly Dudley', from the farm in No. Fla. the blooms are small and sparse, frilly, pink, no BS, and small leaves, but it's own-root and I have them in pots...cute little things, maybe they'll grow more...sally

Love to see a photo, Sally! Love for someone to write an article, on the Dudley farm, and the Dudley roses.

Jeri, I had not seen/heard of this one. Has it been compared to Ruth Knopf's "Rock Hill Peach?" That's what I would have said the photo was.

Malcolm -- I don't think it's been compared with ANYTHING.

Cydney Wade has it, at Rose Petals Nursery in FL:
www.rosepetalsnursery.com

and came from the Dudley Farm Florida State Historic Park.
There are other Dudley roses as well -- worth studying!

Ah. Well, Cydney has seen our "Rock Hill Peach," so maybe she'll have an opinion at this point. I think (not sure) she bought one from us, so likely has it in her collection.

I just sent Cydney a note to see what she thinks. She does list "Rock Hill Peach" in her online catalog.
