Another photo of it.
OK...I am naming it 'Blessed Tea'

STRONG 'tea' fragrance

RE: This is labeled Nancy Reagan by Jackson Perkins...

Hmmm... the petal-reverse is significantly darker. There seems to be some light-apricot (or "cream)" on the lips of the central petals. Plus, very strong tea fragrance, and about 50 petals (perhaps more). I don't know what it is ...but the newest photo looks exactly like a mystery-rose I bought back in 1994 - and it's still alive and 7 feet tall. My rose's bloom-form is definitely Hybrid Tea, and its bloom-habit is mostly singles.

Despite the darker petal-reverse, we know your rose isn't First Prize, because of (1) the fragrance-level and (2) the petal-count.

This might be a chance to finally learn what my "oldest" mystery-rose is! : )

Could it be Aloha? It sometimes has vegetative centers which seems apparent in the first picture, it has a darker reverse, is fragrant and is said to have 50-60 petals.

Hope this helps! : )

Here is a link that might be useful: Aloha

Rosyjennifer, I can only speak about *my* mystery rose (which looks like Joyce's photo #3). Thank you for the Aloha reference. HelpMeFind says Aloha's blooms have "quartered" form. Mine doesn't. Maybe Joyce's does. She'll answer about that, I'm sure. I don't want to hijack Joyce's thread, so I'll be quiet now. I'll get my digital camera the next time my very similar mystery-rose blooms and start my own thread for its identity.

Thanks again,

Hi again JohnReb. : )

Check out the thread "Can you ID this found rose 1 of 3" because there is a darker reverse pink rose that is being discussed there. Maybe we'll have 3 w/ that rose....
