Probably Dr Huey but .... ?

olivia_janeMay 2, 2011

Hi there, I've been reading lots of forums on the subject of rose identification and I'm fairly sure that what I have is probably an overgrown Dr Huey ... except I keep reading that Dr Huey has slight-to-no scent, and this rose is very fragrant!

I'm been in this house for two years, but it's much older than that. It's a rental and, given the state of the backyard when I moved in, no one has paid any attention to this rose in YEARS.

I have some pictures of buds & blooms from last spring (only bloomed for May/June) and the bush itself this year is probably 8' or so. (That's a 6ft ladder propping it up right now.)

So ... is it Dr Huey? It's quite lovely, and I'm not a rose-gardener by any stretch, so I'll be leaving it in no matter what. I'm just curious!
