I'd like to find the names of these three old roses that have been in my garden for over 35 years. The first posted has the most exquisite scent and is a classic pure darkish pink. It blooms from May to December.

The more info you can give us the better our chances of IDing it are. More pictures of the blooms in different stages, from bud to spent, and leaves and the entire plant would also help.

RE: Three old roses

It is a very lovely bloom though :)

RE: Three old roses

Where do you live? In order to identify roses, more information is much better. May to December in your zone might not be the same as May-December in my zone.

Have you looked at Pink Peace? Emmiegray and I think that might be your rose/

RE: Three old roses

I'm looking at Maria Callas, as the rose itself pre-dates the name change, but Pink Peace and even Perfume Delight (because of its exquisite scent) also seem to fit. I am in Sheffield, North of England.
I'll be able to post some more photos soon, but here it is in decline.
Thank you to everybody
