ID for this pale pink/peach rose, please?

Information: I don't know its age, it's probably fairly cold hardy, but it is less heat/drought tolerant than some of my other roses. (Got droopy during the heat yesterday.)

Also, we have a second rose bush that I thought was identical to this one...they have very similar foliage and thorns, and early buds look very much alike. I honestly just thought we had two bushes of the same type. Yet as their roses have each matured, that other one is more obviously (light) pink than this one is and has more petals. Possibly they are related? Dunno if that'll help with ID or not though.

Do you think it could be 'Apricot Nectar'? There are a lot of lovely peachy roses, but that's a popular one, so maybe? And it scored an 'Excellent' rating on most criteria at the Help Me Find web site (link below), but only a 'Good' when it comes to heat tolerance...

Also, I'm no expert, but I wonder if your rosebushes might be the same variety, but some difference in light/soil/something else could cause a slight color variation? If it's a significant difference in color, I'd go for the "Two Different Varieties" theory...

It very well could be Apricot Nectar? So far, however, mine has favored a sort of creamy hue more so than those photos show. Honestly it seems like it fits somewhere between Apricot Nectar and Diamond Jubilee, lol.

As for the second rose bush -- now that it's finished blooming, it's clear that it is a different variety than this one. I've posted on this forum too, under "Light pink rose, lots of pointy petals." I still think they might be related though.

Oh, I just noticed that Apricot Nectar blooms in clusters. Mine has solitary blooms only so far.

Looks like my Medallion! Could it be? Are the blooms huge?

The blooms are average-sized right now, but I do have to say, Medallion DOES look very similar to my rose!
