I just now found this section on roses and thought I should put my rose photos on this identification site as well as the regular one. This rose has average thorns, nice fragrance and seems to be a very vigorous grower. I know it's an old rose but don't know which one. I thought it might be Marchessa bocella but it seems to have long branches, which makes me think it's a climber. Anyone have any ideas?
The blooms seem to be about 2 1/2 inches wide. I've had it in a pot since last year and it bloomed a little in the spring, but I don't think it bloomed much after that. This year it has many more blooms.
I think you may be right in your ID. It looks a bit like Souvenir de la Malmaison or Elie Beauvilain, but more like Marchessa. Lovely rose! I love how it starts out strongly quartered and ends up all frowsy.
