What kind of rose do I have?

rebeccah_2009April 6, 2009

Someone gave me this rose about 7 yrs ago. Last year it was about 10 ft tall. The blooms are pale yellow with pink tips when it first starts to open. When it is fully open it is almost white. The canes are very thick and are upright. Can you help me name it. If it helps any, the blooms are medium-large in size.

It would be easier to guess if you could show us a photo (on Photobucket for instance.) Is the foliage dull or shiny?

My first guess is the climber, "Golden Showers." In cooler weather it usually stays yellow but in hot sunshine it can fade -- I'll put a link to a photo where you can see the pink tips on the buds and paler open blooms:

Here is a link that might be useful: Golden Showers
