Marijke Koopman?

This fully open bloom is supposed to be Marijke Koopman. I have no idea what it is. I've ordered dozens of roses thru the years, I can only recall one other time I received a mis-labeled one. Does anyone have any idea what it is?

This is the same bloom taken earlier. To tell you the truth I think it is gorgeous, but I didn't think it was Marijke Koopman, because I could see the golden shadings, when it opened I was sure. I ordered 2 and the other has one unopened bloom, pretty sure it is the right one. I have only seen pictures of this rose and never seen any indication that it was anything but pink, both from the photos and the descriptions.

That is not Marijke Koopman. This is my Marijke.

You can see it doesn't have any yellow in it like yours and has fewer petals too.

It looks more like Dream Come True, Granada or Mardi Gras to me. Those are all yellow/orange/reddish blends.

Seil - Thanks. The coloring seems to be closest to Granada. I'm not sure yet. Since it is own-root maybe the bush needs to mature a little more to be able to tell for sure.
