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