This rose is about 12-15 feet high and blooms late May/Early June. We have no idea how old it is, although the house was built in 1936 and occupied by the previous gardener from then until the mid-90's. It is very disease resistant. Buds are almost a deep pink before they start to open and then fade. The flowers end up a pale pinkish white. It starts blooming in late May and is fading now (June 16). We have our suspicions, but we don't want to taint the jury.
