Name this moss rose

kwilliams29(z5 OH)June 9, 2005

I previously posted a rose bush we inherited when we moved into our house 2 years ago. Now I have another I am dying to know about.

It's a moss rose, who knows how old. We cleaned out the ivy that was suffocating it and the roses we are getting this year are probably twice the size as last year.

Does anyone know what this rose is?

Thanks for any insight!

From the photos, it doesn't look that mossy to me. Could you get a closeup of a bud showing the moss on the calyx?

If it is mossy, it could be the Common Moss Rose, based on its medium pink color, flat top/cupped shape, and apparent spindly growth pattern. From your pics I can't see the moss though.
