I.D. this mini rose

I saved this rose from oblivion a few years ago.
I found it sitting in a container filled with foul water and appeared to have been that way for a long time.
I re-potted it, put it in my plant hospital and then forgot about it.

Little by little it recovered and turned into a spectacular little mini rose plant.
But the label has been lost.

I would like to know its name if possible.

It blooms both singly and in large trusses.
The color is a pastel pink with a white edge around the petals and a pale white-pink reverse.

Attached a link to my Photobucket site for more photos.
Thanks,
Danty

It reminds me a little of Marriotta.

Yes, Sharon, it DOES have the look of Marriotta.
I grow that one also.

The blooms on this rose are considerably larger and come in huge clusters.

If its a McGredy rose I don't recognize it.

Danty...

You might want to check out 'Adam's Smile'. Here's a photo from HMF.

Hi Lynn,
That is a very close match!
Unless I find any other candidates I think I'm going to say the rose is Adam's Smile.

So now I have two smiles, Adam's and yours, Lynn

Oh that does look like it! Great find, Lyn!

How large are the blooms?

Check out all the photos of "Old Master." I almost wonder if it could be a match since you do have the Cali sun and soil. Perhaps that took some of the darkness out of the coloring.

'Old Master' is definately a floribunda with blooms in clusters at are around 4 to 4.5" average width. It certainly is not a mini, but has been used as a parent to may miniature roses.

Smiles,
Lyn
