What rose is this?

twroszJuly 24, 2012

This rose was purchased as 'Morden Blush', though isn't ... what do you think, it rather resembles 'Prairie Joy', though seems to repeat better than the 'Prairie Joy' I previously had ... it's on its second small flush and more are being produced.

The below is one of the roses I've developed and has been healthy and hardy with good repeat, I've named it 'Grandma's Blouse' for its colorful frilly looks.

Love your Grandma's Blouse! Does it smell like Grandma's rose water too? Lol.

The first one looks like an Austin rose. Definately not Morden's Blush.

Here's another photo, I have several similar sister seedlings, though this one demonstrates stronger disease resistance. I'll have to put my nose to it on a warmer day and take a good sniff :)

I wonder if my mystery rose is one of the Buck's?

That was my next guess, Terry but what do I know? :)

The colour made me think of Hawkeye Belle but I don't think it blooms flat/quartered like that. That part is more like an Austin.

Love the new rose Terry! You don't often see intense pink and yellow together in a rose.

Nope, not Hawkeye Belle. She's paler pink and more of a tea rose shape.

Love Grandma's Blouse, Terry!

I'm glad others also enjoy my 'Grandma's Blouse' rose ... for several reasons it's kinda special to me :)

This is what my mystery rose looked like earlier

I don't know, Terry. That one looks a lot like the Morden Blush I had........?

Could be Lambert Closse. Are the leaves shiny?

Shazam, the foliage is rather like Morden Blush, though darker and more healthy ... I'm still leaning towards 'Prairie Joy' ...

Probably PJ then if the foliage isn't shiny.

It has been a long time since I have been here.
Terry it is definitely not Prairie Joy.The flower petals are too long and the foliage is not right. I would tend to say Lambert Closse, if any. The flowers on my LC's have quartered.

Love your seedling.

LC has shiny foliage, the plant stays fairly small. I never found it to repeat all that well.

PJ has dull dense (for a rose) foliage, can get fairly big. Has an okay repeat.

Oh yeah, the necks on LC's blooms were quite weak. PJ stays up.

Great photo, Shazam! I didn't realize that Lambert Closse is such a good looker, does it have good disease resistance?

Here's a few more photos, the blooms seem to change their looks under different weather conditions and time of the season, I especially like these current blooms.

A foliage shot, there's some hips set from intentional crosses I had done, it otherwise sets few hips due to having petal packed centers and little pollen.

Thanks.

Dollars to donuts you have Prairie Joy. Definitely not LC. I too noticed that PJ's blooms varied.

I don't recall LC ever getting PM or BS. It seemed to be very pest resistant as well. Well worth getting if you can get it to repeat better, which you will probably have better chance of than me due to your location.
