I won a blue ribbon with this rose when I was teenager. It was in a normal category, however. This rose has HUGE blooms (7") on an average size bush. I recall absolutely no disease. It did suffer from vigor and hardiness issues. This is amazing, since I typically dislike pink. This rose was definitely unique.

I wish someone would re-create a modern version of this.

We see they are listed as T & E Pastorino Nursery and they do not appear to have a website to reference. They are of course welcome to add their nursery to HelpMefind. A basic listing on HMF is free and it will allow them to list their inventory using an online form. It's very quick and very easy.

I know that they say this rose has a light fragrance but my plant has more of a moderate fragrance. I really like the scent this rose has, fruity.

I rate fragrance of CM as better than slight, almost moderate. Deb says it is moderate. We like the fragrance too.

This is one of my favorite type of scents for a rose. I tend to like the fruity scents better than the old rose or tea scents.
I'm glad that I am not the only one that has this as a moderates scent. Now I know I'm not crazy;)

We have several that aren't supposed to be very fragrant but are for us. I noticed you have Rio Samba. Our Rio Samba's fragrance is as strong as any of our Gamble Award winners. I just smile when people say it can't be that fragrant. The one that really upsets some is Ingrid Bergman. Ingrid has a nice moderate fragrance in this area. I've checked dozens of them in other gardens. There are those that refuse to believe she can have any fragrance.

The ULTIMATE ROSE BOOK states that Catherine Kordes has NO scent and expressed surprise that she spawned the magnificently scented Chrystler Imperial, Mr. Lincoln, Oklahoma, Crimson Glory chain. My Catherine Kordes IS moderate to strong in the perfume dept. Likewise the rose literature has stated how the weakly scented Garden Party parented the super strong Double Delight, yet my Garden Party frequently smells just like a slightly milder version of. Double Delight

Our Garden Party has an almost strong fragrance too. It isn't a stinker but there is no chance it won't be noticed.

My GP smells great as well. Extremely sweet, like sugar. One of my husband's favorites for scent.

I am concerned that my Color Magic may have been mislabled. It looks like a pale version of Queen Elizabeth with no strawberry/scarlet blush. Bloom color does not change much with age, sun or temperature. Should I give it more time? I've only owned it eight months.

I have no experience with this particular rose, but I do know that roses when immature or stressed can throw out blooms that are unlike their 'normal' blooms. Of course, it's also possible that it's simply mislabeled. You might look at your rose's leaves/thorns/habit and compare them to pics of this rose which are listed here and on other rose sites.

The strange weather this year has many of my roses blooming out of character. My Love and Peace looks like Double Delight... no yellow or orange, which it normally has. I'd give it some time and see if it blooms true when the weather cools.

they are both towering plants but the blooms on Color Magic are MUCH larger.
Have you been able to determine the correct mname yet?
