A friend posted this rose on Facebook, saying he had found it while walking around New York City, where he lives. The flower is large and he said it is fragrant. Any idea what it is?

'Crimson Glory'?

We have an intense yellow unknown rose. Can anyone identify it?
It's oldish, possibly 1970's or earlier.

This link shows an unknown rose found in the Cilento National Park in Southern Italy.

It looks very much like a Tea to me and is very striking for its bicolour effect. I thought it would be interesting to link here in case the Tea Rose ladies haven't come across it before, or might even recognise it as a variety they grow. It's very pretty.

There are other found roses on this site, but this one took my fancy.

Can anyone help me Id this rose? It was my great-grandmothers, she was born in 1916. I think it’s 60-70+ years old, and my great grandpa bought it for her as an anniversary gift. It’s been transplanted probably 8-10 times, she moved it to each new house so it was quite important to her.
The rose is grafted.
It has 25 petals.
Beautiful strong fragrance. If the breeze is right, I can smell it on the patio
I’ve had success at getting a cutting to root so now I have two.

Could be, 'Talisman'.
Reply #2 of 8 posted 1 JUN by Margaret Furness
I wondered about that too, but the Talisman description says "Thornless or almost".

'Talisman' has thorns, (prickles). They are moderately well spaced as compared to many.

You will note, "Thornless or almost", is almost like default setting here at HMF.

I don't know why so many are listed this way but I've noted in most cases it is incorrect.

My rose is very lightly thorned.

I no longer have Talisman, but the prickles on the photo I posted are similar to those on your rose - some almost straight, some slightly down-curved.

I'm fairly certain your rose is, 'Talisman'.

It was very popular, sold far and wide, about the time your GGrandmother would have acquired it.

Umm, yes. It seems to usually mean "Thornless, or almost, when compared to horribly spiky monsters like Mermaid or Rose primula, and if you are feeling exceptionally charitable".

It also look's like "Fred Edmunds".
