Please help ID this rose

shannababy(5b)July 9, 2013

My husband planted two roses (well twigs is what I came home to see really,with nothing on them) from Canadian tire last year and dumped the containers while I was on vacation, I don't know anything about roses other than these are climbing roses and I need to start learning fast as they need to be moved to permanent locations.
So i thought I'd start with IDing them
This is a deep pink almost i would say a hottish slightly orangey pink and is fragrant. Heavy clusters. Is doing well in evening sun only and shade most of day..

Hi
It's hard to judge pinks online as the hue varies so much with the light and the quality of camera. But if it's a pink climber from Canadian Tire, maybe google John Cabot and John Davis, two roses from the Explorer series.

Other likely suspects might be William Baffin, and Morden Centennial. The latter is not a climber but it does get tall, and it looks a lot like this rose.

I don't think this one is John Davis... or John Cabot. You are right about the pinks though showing up diff on cameras... This is almost is apricot or peachy pink... (orangeyish hot pink).Does Canadian Tire only carry Explorer roses?

And it does look a lot like modern centennial...

No, Cdn Tire could carry any number of roses, I was just starting with the most likely. Are you familiar with helpmefind.com? It's the best database for rose varieties. You can filter according to colour and growth habit etc though you may need to pay for the advanced options.
