Help ID Pic!

Hi, I'm a new gardener and I fell in love with this rose while visiting Chicago's Millenium Park. I was hoping that someone would be able to tell me what kind of rose it is, and whether it will grow here in Arkansas, zone 7. Thanks in advance!

Do you have a clearer photo? What else can you tell us about the rose (height, fragrance, thorns, etc)? There are a lot of fluffy pink roses out there...

RE: Help ID Pic!

To me it looks like a nice little shrub rose named "Bonica" -- I'll put a link to photos below.

I'm out of your zone but "Bonica" grows well here in 10a and is disease resistant. The HelpMeFind description says it can be grown down to zone 4 with winter protection:

To me, the color is closer to The Miller or Charles Rennie Mackintosh

RE: Help ID Pic!

Sorry, I could have been a little more descriptive! The rose was kind of shrubby (good foilage), and probably about 3 ft. tall. The blooms were small, cup-shaped, and grew in big clusters. I don't remember a fragrance at all.

I love the Bonica roses, and some of the pics look very similar. They are definately on my wish list now!
