Help identifying an older rose

fatcatslh(Z8 Seattle)July 12, 2005

I have a rose that a friend gave me that she said was over 60 years old. I would like to try and figure out what this is because it is a very interesting rose. The blooms are multi colored and change color as they age. They start out in some cases as a yellowish, orangie or a pink bud that as they age turn a deep red, sometimes with white in the red. I have never seen anything quite like it. When she was digging this up to bring to me it was all one plant that was about 10 to 12 feet tall and when digging it up it split in two and I now have 2 of these fabulious roses but i would love to find out just what they are. I have posted a picture too.

Can't see the pic very well, but at a wild, wild guess maybe Joseph's Coat? It is a climber with extremely variable bloom colors. It's not that old though, it's from 1969.

Looks quite like a miniature in photo, wouldn't know it had been 10 feet high without you having said so.

Sorry about that i guess i should have mentioned that when my friend brought it to me she had cut it to about half and after it had been in the ground for about two weeks it was cut back in hopes that it was early enough in the year that it would create new growth, boy has it these things are going nuts. Anyhoo i have posted more pictures here: http://www.fotolog.net/fatcatslh/
hopefully this will help.

I wasn't going by the height of the thing, I caught that. I was going by the rest of its appearance. Even with your additional shots I still would not guess 'Joseph's Coat'. But: I don't have another name for it.

Helpmefind's advanced search might be able to help. The closest I found was Condesa De Sastago (1930).

Some other roses (unfortunately often without pictures) were Red Echo (1932), Princess van Orange (1934), Climbing Break O' Day (brownell 1944)and Dixie Climber (1935)
