Need help identifying inherited rosebush

Hubbard, IA

Hi -- new to the forums and hoping someone can help identify a rosebush that was planted in our front yard when we moved into our house last summer. It didn't do much then, but we took a chance and pruned it back hard in early spring, and it's glorious this year. Any ideas what it might be?

Thanks in advance!

Welcome to the forum! I'm not much good at rose identification, but some of the folks here are. I hope you find out who it is.

It's Dr. Huey. It's a dead ringer for the ones in the photos.

As the text for the second picture notes, Dr. Huey is and has been a very popular rootstock for grafting. So there are many modern roses on which the top died, and Dr. Huey remained. Whoever put in the rose may very well have put in something quite different.

But that's not necessarily bad. Dr. Huey has won a number of awards.
