I feel sure I have seen this variety before, but I can't think what it is. My old brain works slowly sometimes, but if I can figure it out, I'll get back to you.

Would you guess it is an older variety?

Oh PETALOID you seem to be a living rose encyclopedia!!!
Hope you could finally remember where you have seen this rose.
Of course I think this must be one an hybrid perpetual (HT) or even one of the first HT breeded. I really do not know...
Some days ago I started to look in many websites (HMF and Vintage Garden) and one of the roses I thought it could be was ´Madame Maurin´(Tea Rose, 1853) or even ´Josephine Marot´ (HT, 1895.

Other alternatives could be the following ones:

-Pearl Queen (H. Wichurana, 1901) (but our rose has no scent and this one has).

-Miss Ehtel Richardson (HP, 1897) (but this one has different bloom form).

-James Bougault (HP, 1887) (but our rose has no scent and this one has).

-Josephine Marot (HT, 1895).

-Viscountess Folkestone (HT, 1886) (but our rose has no scent and this one has).

This is what I have been searching still now, hope you could finally hit the target!

Keep in touch, Mariano (B.A, Argentina).

Any news??? I have taken three more pictures this morning and they are now in the album. In the three last pictures you can see the deep pink color of the buds.

It is an evidence of the deep pink color of the buds, that turn into a pure white while opening, remaining just a light pink/ salmon blush just in the centre of the long lasting flowers.

Hope someone could finally give me some more clues, because I am really interested in identifying this beauty to grow it in my garden.

Best wishes, Mariano (B.A, Argentina) White blend rose ID

Set it to public.

I'm drawing a blank. The buds reminds me of Heritage but Heritage is almost thornless plus your rose doesn't resemble it in bloom form.

I posted your question and the linked photos on the Antique Roses forum, and the experts there may be able to figure it out, sooner or later.

I hope you can follow the steps described by roselvr to make it easier for us to see your photos.

Dear esteemed members,

After more than 5 years, I am pretty sure that the pink blend rose is the white sport of âÂÂMadame Caroline TestoutâÂÂ, HT âÂÂAdmiral Duweyâ (1899). Although I have just received some pictures from the Sangerhausen, they were enough for me to identify my unknown rose as this old âÂÂMadame Caroline Testoutâ white sport.

I would possibly discard some other related roses, such as âÂÂFrau Dr. Krügerâ since it has golden-yellow undertones, borne mostly solitary and occasional repeat later in the season. My rose does not have golden-yellow undertones, usually blooms in clusters and has a profuse fall bloom. HT âÂÂGrossherzogin Victoria Melittaâ has white or white blend flowers with a yellow center and a strong fragrance, while the unknown rose has not any yellow coloring and none to mild fragrance. âÂÂMme Gustave Metzâ could have been another possibility but it is too pink, at least in my humble opinion. Furthermore, it has a long pointed form while the unknown rose is more globular. âÂÂLa Favouriteâ was also a globular HP, related with âÂÂMme. Caroline Testoutâ and its descendants, with globular form and it is a good fall bloomer (like my rose), but it has a deep rose color that turns soft pink as the rose ages.

Having said that, I am quite sure that the found rose from that old garden in BA is HT âÂÂAdmiral Duweyâ (John H. Taylor, 1899), although some more pictures would help me to confirm this properly. Any contribution (pictures) or confirmation would be highly appreciated.

Greetings from Buenos Aires!

i was looking at the shape and thinking 'looks like âÂÂMadame Caroline TestoutâÂÂ... '
So âÂÂAdmiral Duweyâ is most likely.
