Initial post yesterday by Amy's Idaho Rose Garden
I love this rose. In my entire garden ( at the time was over 300 roses) it was my healthiest and favorite.
It has health, disease resistance, hardiness, fragrance and garden beauty!
I bought mine from Pat at Roses Unlimited and soon learned the history of this rose!
The clear pink color is so pure and beautiful.
Highly recommend this rose to beginners as well as old rosarians!

And still flowering at 2018-01-17! Even though it was snowing this morning and had some frost.
One might say (almost) continuously flowering during the season, which lasts and lasts.

Writer Karel Capek share garden with his brother, painter Josef Capek. In front of southern facade, exactly on border between brothers, there is a rose, today shrub more than 2m tall, probably one´s trimmed as climber. Large semi-double clear yellow to golden yellow (later pale creamy yellow) come early in mid May. Fragrant. Ocassionaly repeat in October, even November. Shiny leaves stay long until winter. Buds have a orange tips or edges, but this colour rarely stay until full bloom. Big rounded light orange hips with shallow regular grooves and long bracts. Later flowers roll petals and fade in colour. Petioles and branches only slightly red. All structure very strong and robust, but no thorny. Photos from May 18 and October 17.

Similar Rose grow in Bornim, Karl Foerster garden, Lichtkönigin Lucia, but much orange in buds. By character of shrub and flower is close also to Maigold, not by colour. In Sängerhausen I found several with similar flowers, f.e. Lawrence Johnston, Lady Sonia, La Reve, King Midas, Dukat, Frisia, Allgold and few others.

Have a look at 'Lady Hillingdon'.

No - I'm not good at identifying roses, but the colour of Lady Hillingdon is one you can recognise from a long distance away - more ochre than yellow; and it sets few hips.

It's much closer to Golden Showers than Lady Hillingdon.

Golden Showers is very close by type of flower, but this rose flower only in May/June with very rare flowers in Sept/Oct

When you rub the sepals, peduncles and new growth tips, do you detect any plant scents from them? It appears to be related to Foetida and that species frequently gives those parts a very "fruity" scent when they are rubbed. We have a very long running chewing gum, Juicy Fruit, which often has a very similar scent to these parts with Foetida influence. You may need to wait until Spring to detect it in the very fresh, soft new growth. It appears to have the Foetida connection. The presence and strength of those plant scents will help determine how closely related it may be to the species.

Good advice, thank you. I will try. Some detail relate to pimpinellifolia, but foetida is, oh course, also in game.

Is it too yellow, and not thorny enough, for Leverkusen?
REPLY
Reply #8 of 12 posted 3 days ago by ofous
Leverkusen is pale (like older flowers of Capek´s rose) and more regular double, more gentle shape of flower. IMHO

Sorry, I can´t compare with other roses at the moment, generally is not strong scent, but we will know more in May

Ofous, you might like to read the Plant Patents for both 'Golden Showers' and 'High Noon'. Do a three column comparison of the charactistics of your rose, and these two.

Both of them are very close in several details, but both flowering throughout the season.

I'm puzzled by the USDA cold hardiness rating of this rose. It's listed as 7b. Peace, the rose from which it sported, is listed as 5b. Furthermore, Chicago is in zone 5. So how is it that this rose survived there long enough after the sport occurred for someone to notice? Or was turning flamingo pink just a sign it had ceased to be cold hardy and wanted to retire to Florida?

I don't understand it either. I've noticed quite a few being changed to 7. Some I grow in zone 6, and some I know someone in Chicago grows funnily enough. Example - I noticed Belinda's Dream was changed to 7 on here, so I got worried about the 3 I have. (own root) I asked someone that grows it in Chicago just fine. He said he never had a problem, and many places that sell it say zone 5. I look for other information now, before I go by the zone info here. High Country Roses has Chicago Peace listed as 6. I just ordered one, but I still would have if I were in zone 5, for the reason you mentioned. I would give it some extra mulch to be safe, but I would have tried with this one to be sure.
