Is this upright bush Strike It Rich? It's about 4 / 5 feet tall. The bloom was on a 4 foot new shoot coming from close to bottom of plant. Blooms are cantaloupe in color. The leaves are a med/dark green without a sign of BS. Only a slight woody smell.

I need your help in IDing this rose.

It does look like a lot of the photos of Strike It Rich on HMF

Here is a link that might be useful: Strike It Rich

Thanks sell,

I believe this is Strike It Rich. When i first looked I didn't notice pink on the tip/end of petals, but did notice it was different than the middle. I have looked at additional blooms, they have some color shading but not pink to my eye. The rose bush is in partial shade and some blooms are under a soffit this may account for the absent of pink.

I have been looking into getting Strike It Rich, and although this does look similar to the photos I've seen, it also looks a lot like South Africa, and since Strike It Rich is supposed to have a strong fragrance, and since this one does not have much of one, maybe it could be the less fragranced South Africa? I would love anyone who has more experience with either of these roses to neither confirm or deny this for me because as I said I'm looking into getting Strike It Rich, if it has no fragrance, I may reconsider.
