Blooming now. Thin stemmed climber, dark red buds about 1", blossom 2.5" scarlet w yellow stamens. 15-20 petals, opens flat and cupped. Medium fragrance, not too sweet. Perhaps Musk/China type. Description similar to 'Blaze' but not thick stemmed. Thanks.

Could it be Dr. Huey?

Good call. I think you're right. It fits the site's history. A nice addition to my collection of root stock roses. The picture in Botanica's Roses is a match. I'm pleased with it. The color stands out in its location, and the scent is not "slight", it's clean and spicy. I was looking at Grüss an Teplitz as a possibility from the description, but the picture didn't match. Thanks.

There are others much more experienced so hopefully they can confirm. I have two in my yard that came with the house. It is not everyone favorite , but has always put on a good show for me
