IMPORTANT! Please help - Is this rose Conrad Ferdinand Meyer?

AndrewBarocco(9)August 7, 2013

Hi everyone, I was hoping someone could tell me what this rose is. The reason it's important is because I am using it in my breeding program to increase the genetic diversity of my seedlings and as a breeder, knowing a rose's parentage is very important. I know one picture isn't much, but I can tell you it is definitely a Hybrid Rugosa, as this has the characteristic rugose foliage but not quite a purebred rugosa. The blooms are all double or very double, have a strong almost "Fruity Pebbles" fragrance. I thought it might be Therese Bugnet but it is not because this rose is very thorny.

Andrew, I have a Therese Bugnet with older canes that have gigantic thorns. The very new canes do not. The blooms on my rose have about twice as many petals as your photo.

Thanks for your comment zelda77. I just went ahead and listed it on my tags as Conrad Ferdinand Meyer. Maybe I'll know for sure one day.
