Is this Dr. Huey?

Or another rootstock variety?

This is one of many neglected roses on my new property. The cane, one of the few left alive, looks like it's coming from below the graft.

That looks way too true red/tomatoey to be Dr. Huey to my eye. Also too many petals? And I think Dr. H would be done blooming where you are -- I'm in your zone and region, though not on the coast.

I don't know what it is, but I doubt it's Dr. Huey.

Thanks to you both. Unfortunately the deer got the bloom as well as its companion buds, so I don't have anything else to go on. I guess I'll just have to wait for next spring to find out for sure!
