I posted this on the general rose forum.. Then realized you guys had a specific spot just for identifying roses :). Sry I am new...

I bought this hybrid tea at a local garden center, all they could tell me was that it was a Hybrid Tea but they weren't sure what color it would end up because it was all just buds and they had lost the label.
It's about 2.5ft tall and has 7 blooms and about 20 more buds ready to open... It has really lush green leaves with a slightly red tinge to them.

It's a light pink with big globe like flowers. I absoloutly love this rose. I hope someone can tell me what it is! And maybe some care tips :). I definately don't want to kill it and this is my first rose ever.

I am going to attempt to upload some pics, hope they work :)

Does look a good bit like SEXY REXY, altho it's a floribunda, not a HT. And the bloom size looks too big for it. But I think that's a pretty good guess anyway.

RE: Hybrid Tea Rose - any ideas?

I have Sexy Rexy and the bloom shape is right but the foliage is wrong compared to mine. Mine has a lot of tiny, shiny foliage. I agree the blooms are too big.

Maybe an Austin?

Looks like very much like Aloha (Boerner 1949). Worth checkin out :-)
