Do you recognize this rose?

Does this look like Chrysler Imperial?

I got this bareroot rose from Home Depot earlier this year that was **supposed** to be Reine Des Violettes.

It seems to be a fast grower and the blooms are bright red(but not really a true red) with white streaks inside that is hard to tell from the pictures.

I am really leaning towards CI on this one(esp. after comparing pictures on HMF).

Please let me know what you think.

Also, does it look like it may be the climbing version?

It doesn't look like my CI..bloom is not full enough and shape is wrong..I don't know what it is, though.

I have a mystery rose that looks alot like that one. The color is the same as mine and it has long stems, those pale green leaves and isn't very thorny like Chrysler Imperial is. I saw the roses at Home Depot this year and noticed they had Chrysler Imperial and Christian Dior reds for sale. I bought my rose at Wal-Mart and it was supposed to be a Mr. Lincoln but I bought two and they look different. One was a Mr. Lincoln but the other looked like the one in your picture. They had Olympiad and Christian Dior roses as well as Mr. Lincolns. Makes me wonder if it might be Christian Dior.
Can anyone tell by looking at your picture?

It is a puzzlement...
