Not Gloire de Dijon--what is it???

Ok, I thought this rose was Gloire de Dijon, but after further investigation I was clearly mistaken. I think it originally came from Wayside in one of their bareroot bonanza sales three years ago. Any ideas? The color in the photos is pretty true to life. Thanks for the help!

Could it be Hybrid Musk Cornelia? I also know Wayside offered it before.

Olga, I think you may be right, or at least very close. The color range of Cornelia on HMF looks like it fits but the foliage and growth pattern descriptions don't as much. Do you grow Cornelia?

Upon further inspection of the plant, I am not so sure that it is Cornelia. The blooms are not clustered, nor is the foilage especially leathery or vigorous. Also, the bloom form is more semi-double than double. Any other ideas?
