Yellow-peach hybrid tea?

alison_27(z8b coastal WA)July 11, 2009

I just moved into a home with the remnants of a neglected garden. Among my new treasures is this amazing overgrown rose. It's about 8 feet tall? (I'm terrible with height estimates but it's much higher than I am) with large, fragrant blooms in clusters. I love the color (yellow-peach fading to pink), I love the fragrance (slightly peppery, not overpowering but strong enough to waft on the wind) and I love the disease resistance (despite at least 9 months of neglect and likely much more, this is the one rose in the garden with almost no blackspot!) I would love to know what it is and might even want another in my garden.

So...here are some pics! Please help!

For another data point, if it helps, this rose does not seem to be interested in another round of blooms. The hips are forming nice and large and round, with nary a new flower in the last couple of weeks.

It reminds me of Autumn Sunset. Pretty, whatever it is.

If you clip off the spent flowers and hips, it might well surprise you with another cycle of blooms:

Thank you so much for the message, I'd forgotten to have follow-ups emailed!

And gosh, I really think you nailed it. The photos on HMF look EXACTLY like my rose, I even did a double-take thinking that I'd taken one of them. :D This is wonderful information to have, because I was going to prune it like a hybrid tea next spring! Now instead I just have to figure out how I want to train it. Thanks again!!

I happy that you checked back here, and that it looks like it really is Autumn Sunset. Enjoy your pretty climber!
