Unidentified Rose Bush

Posted by JodieMarie WV (My Page) on

The bush itself is very large: 9 feet by 6 feet. The tall stems are extremely thorny from the ground to the tip. The bush flowers from late spring through the fall. The pink blooms are small (about quarter sized) and have no scent. The bush is usually so full of blooms that it appears to be in danger of uprooting.

Thank you

Compare your rose with photos of Pink Grootendorst or F.J. Grootendorst at

P.S. Roses can definitely grow bigger than their listed size in warmer climates...

RE: Unidentified Rose Bush

It looks like Pink Grootendorst to me. It is definitely a rugosa rose (wrinkled leaves are the give away)and Grootendorst has serrated edges on the petals.
