I have 2 unknown ramblers that I am trying to identify. The details are posted with pictures at the link.

Thanks for looking,

Cheers Collin

Collin, the darker one could be Crimson Ramber. It is from multiflora, so the stipules (flanges at base of leaf stems) would be fringed. The other common cherry-red ones are Excelsa, which generally has larger clusters, and Chevy Chase, which I haven't seen. As I recall, Excelsa does not have fringed stipules.

The light pink is probably Dorothy Perkins. Light rose pink, very tough, but mildewy.

The look nice on the tripods.

I suspected that the pink one was Dorothy Perkins.

And yes, the dark pink one does have fringed stipules, so perhaps it is Crimson Rambler. I had thought Excelsa.

Thanks so much for the info.

Crimson Rambler does have the white centers, which I forgot to mention.
