Anyone know what this is?

South China, ME(Zone 5a)

My DD saw this on facebook and feel in love, she asked me where she can purchase it and the name of it. I told her...
"I don't know enough about rose to even guess....let me ask the experts." So hear I am! ^_^
Do any of you have any idea what this could be?

Whoever she is she is a most impressive rose! (I'm anxious to know too.)

Thanks Baja, I think this may be a hard one to I.D., looking at it makes me think the photo has been enhanced...darkened to be exact.
I have come across some that are similar ...
Dynamite
Luxor
Rosie O'Donnell
Ronald Reagan
Xcite

That is a very dramatic photo. I'll add a couple more to the list.

I thought it might be a florist's rose. So I did a search on HMF and found Nicole (Hybrid Tea, 1998): http://www.helpmefind.com/rose/l.php?l=2.28066.1. Particularly this photo: http://www.helpmefind.com/rose/l.php?l=21.52598

Could be Fairest One: http://www.helpmefind.com/rose/l.php?l=2.62184.1

But it could possible be a miniature. I don't have very many miniatures that stick in my mind.

If you are looking to buy a rose that has that look and is still in circulation you might look for Nicole. It is a Kordes rose and appears to still be in limited circulation as it is listed with a wholesale supplier here in the states. Fairest One was distributed by Jackson and Perkins, but they don't seem to list it anymore.

Luxor is a very good option too. Another florist's rose. I've seen both Ronald Reagan (the rose) and Rosie O'Donnell (again only the rose, not the person) in person. The reds don't really match up for me with those two. Although they are both very good roses.

Good luck in your search. Can you contact the face book poster of the photo? They may know what it is.....

Oh, and it might be Hannah Gordon on a cold day. http://www.helpmefind.com/rose/l.php?l=21.89514

Thank you so much Terri! Those are very close and will send them her way. I think DD is trying to track down the original poster but it's been "shared" hundreds of times. :(

my very first thought last nite
was that ot is photoshopped !

if you figger it out, pls let us know !

Harlingen, TX

I think the picture is just edited. I have a 'Love' rose and it does make wonderful roses like that but it is more of a hot pink than red and they don't smell :/

Anyways, the white underside of the petals looks too white and the surrounding green of the leaves looks odd to me.

South China, ME(Zone 5a)

I thought the exact thing. ^_^

Harlingen, TX

It sure would be nice if it is real though! :)

Richmond, TX

Snow Fire is a true red with a white reverse - but not purple...

Harlingen, TX

Wow Snowfire is nice but they look too pink when they open for my taste. Not that I hate it, I have double delight which looks similar when we have cloudy weather and they don't darken up.

Austin, TX

'Love' grandiflora maybe?

Harlingen, TX

I don't think so, we decided it must be edited or some other rose. I have a 'Love' rose and it is very pretty but its nowhere near that dark. Its a hot pink color on top.

Austin, TX

Right, but edited from what?

Rancho Santa Rita, TX(Zone 8a)

Has anyone seen the Dick Clark ?

Does it matter? If it's altered you might not be able to tell. The point we had made earlier was that it is probably photo shopped, as in fake. If you open up the larger version do you notice how the green foliage doesn't look natural?

Harlingen, TX

The Dick Clark rose looks like Double Delight to me unless I got a rose that was tagged wrong last year? Well actually Dick Clark looks more pink I guess. I'm not a huge fan of anything pink but my double delight out performed all my other roses last year. It even stood up to our weeks of 100 degree weather and kept pumping out blooms for me.

I am hoping to add a second double delight to my collection this year if they have them at lowe's again

South China, ME(Zone 5a)

Aslan, im a fan of Double Delight too! ^_^

Another one....ignore the white spots on the leaves. Hubby got carried away with the dusting to keep the beetles off the roses. Got to love him for trying to protect them. :)

Haha isn't it just great?

I just got a couple of roses off of it yesterday.

Oh! Speaking of bugs on roses, I actually tried something new and it worked out great. I just use the fruit tree spray I use on my peaches on my rose bushes. I have not seen any bugs on them at all, plus it makes the leaves shiny :) It's made by 'green light' and is labeled as 'fruit tree spray'

It's concentrated so I bought one of those gallon sized hand pump sprayers and just mix about a tablespoon in with a gallon of water and mist everything. It says it is an insecticide, fungicide, and miticide all in one.

Oh I have zone envy bad!!! We are expecting 6-10" of snow tonight into tomorrow!!!

Harlingen, TX

Yikes! The last time I saw snow here it was Christmas morning in 2004 I think? It was only a couple of inches but covered everything and supposedly broke our 200 year record for snowfall here :p

It's not all great down here though, we don't get the crazy cold weather you probably get but we have to put up with the heat. Last summer the low temperature at night on several occasions was 80 degrees!

But this is some of what I get to look forward to even if it is hot:

Yes, it does matter. I get it that it doesn't matter to you, but it does matter to others. It's certainly not a painting.

Here's another strange (to me) looking one that is quite similar.

http://www.petales-de-roses.com/lang-en/529-eddy-mitchell-meirysett.html

Harlingen, TX

No one ever said it was a painting, I was however informing you what we had discussed about the photo back on February 17th. The colors do not look true to life to me at least which is why I think it is a fake, so in my opinion it doesn't matter because for all we know it could be a picture of the 'love' rose that has been enhanced. Am I the only one that thinks the picture looks odd?

Anyway, no disrespect intended btw. I'm just saying why bother deciding what it is if it's probably fake? Because if it is enhanced they may have used any rose that is similar to the picture.

Austin, TX

I know it's fake. And I know nobody said it was a painting. I just mentioned that to hopefully inspire you with an idea of why I might be interested in exploring this. I am curious to know what plant the fake picture was made from. I don't see how this is a problem. Yes, the picture looks odd. Yes, it is obviously a fake. It was probably adjusted from a photo of a flower that at least had some of the characteristics of the photo. It's likely not much more than an exaggeration (the fact that the leaves are discolored, for example, show that the adjustment was probably made to the whole picture, and not simply applied with a paintbrush tool, for example). It's still interesting to know what the starting point may have been. If you're not interested, why not just leave the thread alone for those who are interested?

Even if we might not be interested in what it might be modified from, there could still be interest in roses that have a similar look. So far in this thread, people have been posting roses with white reverse that could have been darkened for the effect. My last post is an example of the opposite. It's already dark enough but would need the reverse to be lightened. Before editing, it's a completely different looking rose. So, just curious (I hope that's OK), what do you think of that color combination in a rose? Do you agree with me that it looks strange?

Richmond, TX

I think this is an interesting game! The victim of photoshopping must have been red with a white reverse. I hope the pictures we find of possible but unfamiliar blooms have not been similarly "improved"!

Harlingen, TX

Victorengel you are completely right, forgive me and my stubborn capricorn ways ;p Haha it's been a long week. I'm a full time student taking 17 hours and its just been a crazy couple weeks. Entomology lab midterm tuesday, lecture exam yesterday, Genetics exam tomorrow, and a Genetics lab midterm next week along with my anthropology psychology exams before spring break.

They are just spaced out enough to make me crazy and busy ALL the time and I was just cranky and tired last night but I'm all cranked up on caffeine and B-12 right now so I'm feeling great! lol Anyway just ignore my previous comments.

Anywho, back on topic, honestly it looks like the 'love' rose I have but with a much deeper red. Although... someone suggested 'snowfire' which if you google, looks very similar just a tad lighter than the picture. In fact, I would venture so far as to say that is my best guess for what it is.

Harlingen, TX

I know this is random but I just wanted to share this picture :)

One of my nectarine trees is starting to break dormancy and this is the first time I get to see the blooms up close since they were gone before I planted it last spring.

I didn't know they were pink and white like that! (slightly unrelated to this thread, but technically, if you have studied botany you will know that peaches and nectarines are actually in the same family as roses: Rosaceae)

... as are apples. My 'Anna' apple is nearly finished its bloom flush. Meanwhile, the 'Golden Dorsett' which I planted as a pollinator has not even burst out in bud yet. I have several peaches, and their flowers vary from light pink to deep pink to one like your picture. So far the volunteer tree, which is at its peak of blooming right now, is the only one to flower so far. The others are thinking about getting started (buds swelling).

Harlingen, TX

I see a couple of buds on my other trees but the only one blooming is that nectarine with about 4 blooms open. Your anna apple is already done blooming? Im further south than you and neither of mine have done anything yet. I have 3 peach trees (Florida King, White Princess, and Sam Houston) 2 nectarine trees (sweet surprise and sweet pearl) 2 plum trees (sweet august sensation and candy rosa) and 2 apple trees (anna and dorsett golden)

I've got my own little orchard growing in our grapefruit orchard haha but I'm surprised your trees are already blooming. My apple trees were just added last fall but they took off and grew well until they went dormant. I guess I am a little impatient because most of these trees were added last spring and I'm just dying to see them bloom out for the first time.

I might be hoping for a little much since they have only been here a year but they already stand on their own. the peach tree trunks are about 2-3 inches thick and the florida king actually kept five peaches on it even though it was blooming at the time I planted it last spring so I am expecting at least some fruit this year.

Alba, TX(Zone 8a)

Gosh, what a pretty blossom!

Aslan89, hang in there! It will be worth it in the end.

Richmond, TX

How much good is a pollinator if it blooms at some different time? My Anna and Dorsetts haven't bloomed yet. I hope they coordinate their efforts.

Sebastopol, CA(Zone 9a)

This photo intrigued me too, mainly because it was so obviously "doctored." I tried to correct the colors as much as possible. Some of the leaves are still too green because they were hand-painted after the colors were adjusted, probably to disguise black spot. Anyway, this is what I came up with, and it's a dead ringer for Snowfire (and for at least two or three dozen other roses).
