ID this 'Blue Rose' (Pics)
I have posted to the Rose Forum and they suggested I ask here for an ID.
My original Post:
I purchased this as a tiny bareroot rose two years ago from an obscure internet source. The only thing I remember is that it was called a "Blue Climbing Rose". It threw out seven six foot canes last year but never bloomed. I had to cut it back and pot it when we moved to a new home last fall and it's still in it's "temporary" pot right now. I know there are no blue roses, but was waiting to see what it would actually look like when it finally bloomed before determining where to plant it. The buds are blue-ish pink and the flower is approximately and inch and a half across and has a classic rose fragrance.
BTW: It now has quite a few blooms. Most folks on the rose forum thought it was an "Angel Face" except that the flowers are all under 2 inches in diameter. It is definately a climber with six foot canes last year.
