Just bloomed today

GaelicGardener(z6 RI)June 6, 2005

One of my mystery roses just bloomed today so I am finally able to post pics. This was a body bag type rose that I bought at KMart. I've had it in my garden for three years. It's about 8 or 9 feet tall. I did have to prune it back pretty agressively last year because of winter damage, so it would probably be taller still.


It has medium-thick canes/thorns. The roses bloom all along the branches, about 4 inches apart, sometimes in sprays of three or four roses/buds.

I bought it because it has that "wild rose" look, like the roses that grow at the beach. The tag has faded and I can't remember its name. Any ideas?

Would you have bought an Explorer rose by an chance? It looks an awful lot like William Baffin to me...
