Can you ID this found rose 2 of 3 (large files)

gerry_wyomingpa(z6)June 7, 2005


Bush


Bud


Nearly open


Full bloom

I am not sure of the age on this one at all, all I know is that it was purchased for my neighbor by her daughter, so I am guessing it is no more than 40 years old or so, guessing being the operative word!

Thanks again!

Gerry

The quilted appearance of the leaves definitely indicates Peace in the heritage. I was going to suggest Miss All-American Beauty, but it almost looks like a better bush habit than Miss AAB. Miss AAB could be the right time frame - 1965.

I wonder if it could also be Karl Herbst - otherwise known as Red Peace, introduced in 1950.

It really looks like Electron to me. It was introduced in 1970. Miss All American Beauty is possible too.

Hmmm ... you, know - you may be right: Electron. Although it appears fairly tall, it still has a "squat" appearance. Maybe it's reasonable considering the advanced age. Also, the thorns on the canes on the left look right - vicious.

Here's mine - the flowers do look very similar:

I just ID'd a very similar rose and mine's definitely Miss All-American Beauty. I loved the rose so much I went out and bought 3 of them!! It took some looking, but we finally found it! Here are pictures of the "ghetto" rose that blooms in an alley in the town next to ours. I drive by it on my school bus route everyday. Here are some pix of the rose I "found".


Your's looks just like mine!
