Your rose greatly resembles the HT Veldfire, or the Fl Charisma. I have both, and both are very similar in color, but not size of the bush. Veldfire is a tall upright shrub, say 4'-5' with blooms usually one to a stem, and Charisma is about 3' and more rounded with sprays of blooms. Veldfire also blooms more frequently than Charisma. I have Fred Loads, and the striped sport of Fred Loads, Festival Fanfare, and both are uniformly red-orange as the base color, with no yellow.
The moment I saw your beautiful rose , I remember it from a book about all roses === the name is REDGOLD winner of 1971 of the ARS .I loved this rose from the first moment I saw it , and always wanted to have one . at any rate enjoy this beautiful rose , and the reason why I do not post a link is because I do not know if I am breaking any rules ==== I am new in this site ...it is a floribunda it resembles SUTTER'S GOLD which is a hybrid tea rose.
Back in 2001, I don't think folks were getting their answered threads pop up so that they knew they were getting replies to them, too bad, would have been nice to see additional pics. Too bad, it will remain a mystery :-(
