Rose ID - Damascus?

fattboaJanuary 9, 2014

Hello, bought these roses in Kuwait. Any fragrant rose is called Mohammadi rose, regardless of its true nature so going to need some help to know whether they'll survive the summer or what to do if they go dormant. I'm really a beginner in gardening so I apologize If I'm dense.

This rose is supposedly from Holland. Cannot smell any fragrance but others tell me they can. Largish flowers? Its from a small plant so cannot really tell if its a bush or climber but Im guessing a bush. Nasty thorns, short and straight

This is apparently a Mohammadi rose. Small flowers that did not open until cut. Sepals have an interesting shape. Has a fragrance exactly like rosewater but only after I've cut it. Petals have become dark velvet red. Somewhat nasty thorns

Another Mohammadi rose. Largish flower. Cannot detect fragrance but others can. Very large hooked thorns
All of these flowers were grown in Kuwait so they should be able to handle the heat and mild winters.

Thank you

I'm sorry no one has been able to help you with this but with just that one dim picture it would be very hard to say what rose that is.

No need to apologize, you did no wrong
I can always get more pictures but I am unsure of what. Foliage perhaps and petals?
Thank you for your response

Pictures of the bloom in all stages, from bud to fully opened, leaves, stems, thorns and the whole plant can all be helpful in IDing a rose.
