SOLVED: My unknown rose!!

Wilmington, NC

This is the rose bush that my Great Dane *pruned* for me over winter!! I was so fortunate for it to survive!! Have not yet tried propogation. (But am very anxious to!)

If anyone can please identify it, I would be forever thankful!!

Spring is here!!! Yippee!

warmest wishes,

Oh,wow, i am not a rose fan, but that one is great, like it loads.

Bodrum, Turkey(Zone 10a)

It's a beauty....But I dont have any idea what it is.

Troy, VA(Zone 7a)

AJC - "loads" - Frank Loads??? Nicole it looks like a hybrid T, and I'm not too familiar with them, but it could be Grand Impression, or even a floribunda called Outrageous!

Kingsville, OH(Zone 5a)

How about Tropicana, I was a caretaker for a company that had hundreds of roses.

Aliso Viejo, CA(Zone 10a)

Hybrid Teas are not my specialty, but that is the kind of rose that you have.


Olive Branch, MS(Zone 7b)

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.

So dear Teachia (is your name Benson? Do you know the name of that beautiful baby you sent the
foto of? I want one too...

Northern California, United States(Zone 9a)

The original poster wanted the ID over 8 years ago, doubt she's on here any more, not sure why this was bumped up.

Rancho Santa Rita, TX(Zone 8a)

It was bumped up because it had been in what is this plant forum and never snwered yet... and because I think it is a pretty rose and it would be nice to know what its name is.

Sue I have been wnating to dmail you and tell you how much I enjoy
you fotos here and in Help Me Find. I am a hayuuuuuuge fan of your artistry in the area of phtography. Thanks for all you

LOL, thank you BB, I am flattered!

Another option is Rio Samba.
Too bad the original poster never came back with additional photos or comments.

Rancho Santa Rita, TX(Zone 8a)

You are welcome Sue!
I only calls em as I sees em!

Your latest foto shoot outing
made me wonder if this could possibly be Chris Evert?

Northern California, United States(Zone 9a)

Ah yes, another possibility.

Miami, FL(Zone 11)

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 is a floribunda it resembles SUTTER'S GOLD which is a hybrid tea rose.

Could it be Joseph's Coat? I have one that's a climber and the rose blooms look very similar to this - kind of change as they mature from bud to blossom to spent blossom.

Northern California, United States(Zone 9a)

This is an old thread posted April 03, 2001 and the original poster never came back so we'll never know. Lots of roses look like her picture in bud form.

Wish someone else can mark this as Closed so it doesn't get bumped up and look like it's current.

Northern California, United States(Zone 9a)

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 :-(

Perrysburg, OH

I don't know a lot about rose cultivars, but yours is gorgeous!

Benton, KY(Zone 7a)

I'll mark it closed.

If anyone sees any other ones that need this, let me know.

Brandon, FL(Zone 9b)

shouldn't be marked "solved" .. more like "unsolved mystery poster"
