ID for white center w/ pale pink outer
When I moved into my house in November 2007, it came with 9 different rosebushes. Two had tags, one I was able to identify on my own, but there are still six unknown varieties. Any help figuring out the unknowns would be greatly appreciated, and if I should try to add any more information that I haven't thought of please let me know. Here's the first and what I know about it just from tending it this year.
Petal Count: ~30 is a guess, as this was my first time counting petals.
Blooms: single bloom per stem, not clustered. Repeat bloomer. The shape of the flower is kind of pointy/swoopy... I sometimes think they look like wings. Large.
Bloom Color: Creamy white center with pale pink outer petals and edges. As it ages, the pink fades. It was more white during its first April bloom, and is slightly more pink in its second July bloom. Reverse seems the same as the top.
Foliage: Dark with large leaves that seem somewhat resistant to getting eaten, though not entirely. 5-7 leaves per stem depending on how old the stem is. I'd say the leaves are more matte than glossy.
Thorns: Lots of them. Thick, poky... only place they take a while to show up is on the flower stem.
Overall plant: It's tall and sturdy. It's currently near my height (5'6").
Soil: The soil around it isn't the best. It's hard and likely full of clay.
Sunlight: It gets full sun to part shade through the day.
Zone: I'd say I live in Zone 9-10, more on the 10 side.
Age: I haven't a clue. But I'd guess 5+ years based on the surrounding area, how hard the ground is to do anything with, and knowing the previous owners didn't do much except maintenance.
Additional: Sometime before I moved in, suckers came out and stayed out. There's a small wild red rose that shares the bush now. At a guess, it's somewhat stunting the growth of the cultivated one, since during the biggest flush of flowers in April there were a ton of small red ones just after the white ones finished. I don't think there have been more than 8 white blooms open at one time. But it does seem to be mostly holding its own.
