Big, Fat Pink Rose??? Name(s) pls!
There is a lovely little rose garden located in a nearby park--with no labels! Argh! So, I took cuttings of this beautiful, fat, totally packed with petals rose (1 rooted...but 1 is enough, for this year :) ). Some info: It balls like crazy! And with this heavy rainy weather, I can't seem to get a good pic. Finally went back last week and found some that weren't balled to hell. It smells lovely! Not heavy, though. No musk smell, rather a medium old rose? (So subjective, I know!). Moderate, I'd say...but again that could be influenced by the weather. Here are some pics: (the ones with white background are from a few days ago, the others from about 3 weeks ago). The flower is nearly as "deep" as it is wide! When buds, they are very fat. And when I finally saw one mostly open, it was a good 3-4" wide. Also, petal count for the one on the white background is over 70 :) Of course, I had an exact number, but in my fervor to photograph the petals, I forgot. As for height, it seems to be regularly pruned, the forth pic down is about head height for me (I'm 5'7") and about half that wide...more of a grandiflora shape?
I feel like what it is is staring me right in the face, I'm just to close to figure it out, lol!
