Does anyone know what this might be? It was given to me 5 years ago by my grandmother. She said it was sold to her as “The Fairy” but it doesn’t look like any picture of The Fairy I’ve seen.

Take a look at the file called 'Multiflora nana perpétuelle'. Ignore the photos and just read the references.

It's not 'Baby Faurax', but it definitely has that look about it.

Yeah seems close, but too doubled.

To follow Patricia's comment: multiflora seeds were and are sold in packets as Fairy Roses. Very variable outcome; some are good.

Its leaves are a little wide and shiny for a fairy rose.

Well that would be interesting if it was one of these. The bush is very prolific. My grandmother started this from a cutting 2 years ago. It blooms about 7 weeks after taking a cutting and makes cuttings very easily. I have been using it for a seed parent starting this spring and I find it makes way more flowers than I can pollinate. Also it is very disease and drought resistant.

If it has luciae (wichurana) parentage to give it shiny leaves, it would probably root down (layer itself) readily. Does it do that?

It's a little bit like 'Marjorie Fair'.

Marjorie Fair seems close but I think the pink is too dark and the clusters are a little too tight. Thanks for the input though.

I haven't noticed it doing that (rooting down or layer itself) as it is upright and bushy. Also I've kept it trimmed well. But it roots a lot easier in general than any of my other roses.

Hi everyone,

I have a yellow Tea-hubrid rose that grows to around 2m high grafted and 1.5m high own roots, no fragrance and blooms in flushes throughout the season.

The foliage is glossy green.

Really vigorous.

Any idea of what it is ? I have it since 15-20 years approx.

Thank you !

I'm only guessing, but maybe 'Henry Fonda'. (?)

Thank you for your answer !

I am not 100% certain it's that particular variety but maybe...

I forgot to mentionned it's in France, so it must be a variety distributed in Europe

It is almost impossible to determine what the rose is from a couple of bloom photos. I can only suggest you add photos of the bare winter bush, the summer bush, foliage, a leaf on your hand for size comparison, hips, bloom side-on showing pedicel, prickles, etc. Then you need to tell us of any susceptibility to disease, how many petals, how wide the average bloom is, and absolutely anything else you can think of that will help identify your foundling.

From Leonie K, who gardens in the subtropics, in Queensland: I have a repeat-flowering rose, bought from Bunnings (hardware chain) as Cl Perle d’Or, but it isn’t that. The buds have an apricot tinge, often with a pearly sheen, and the flowers age to white. The flowers are not very large, about 3cm (a bit over an inch) across. To me it is very similar to the rose I have grown for the past 20 years as Prosperity. However this one is more of a climber and not many prickles. When I purchased it, 3-5 years ago, it was in a pot with a ladder with it trained up and was in the company of climbers. Again the foliage is more hybrid-musk-like than a Noisette and every piece I put in grows like a weed. Noisettes do not grow easily on their own roots here. I would say it has more petals than Prosperity and sometimes it is quite pompom-like but then sometimes more just semi double. It rarely comes singly but in trusses that cascade over and do not stand up like a floribunda.
I grow Cl Softee and “Bunya Mountains”, and it isn’t either of them.

From Billy: I see fringed stipules and slight zig-zag in the growth.
Patricia and Andrew did some sleuthing via the hardware chain’s suppliers: it looks like Smooth Snowflake (HT) and Fabulous (floribunda), but they’re not climbers.

The only thing I can suggest now is that somebody (anybody) open up these photos on their mobile phone, next time they visit Bunnings.
Later thought: I feel that 'Sea Foam' is too prickly and the leaves too glossy to be considered.

The local Bunnings (in SA) currently has no climbing roses apart from Banksia lutea.
