I have had a rose bush I thought was Joseph's Coat but it does not seem to me to be a climber and the color of the blooms can be described as pink and yellow variance but I have never thought of it as red and yellow blends. This rose bush also never has problems with black spot or rust. I'm wondering if it is something other than Joseph's Coat?

There are a number of things your rose might be with those colors. Joseph's Coat is extremely prickly and can be grown as a shrub without support. Perhaps it's possible yours might be Joseph's Coat, but a very unhappy plant of it. If you can post photos of it I'm sure you would get some suggestions of others to compare it to. You should see the "add photo" tab on the right side of your posting once you've posted it under the "edit post" tab.

Is this Joseph's Coat? It was supposed to be Anastasia.

It doesn't appear to be Joseph's Coat to me. The foliage appears too glossy and the colors are just wrong for what I have observed over the past nearly four decades of Joseph's Coat. Does that mean it absolutely could NOT be Joseph's Coat? No. But it does mean I have never seen the rose with foliage as glossy appearing, nor with coloring as "blue-pink" as this photo appears.

I realized it's not thorny. I have taken another photo of it. I just looked it, not download yet. I wonder what it could be?

The scent says mild, but my nose says moderate and fruity. Its a few notches less fragrant, but similar in smell, to Westerland.

"Saved" a wax/bagged one of these this March, fresh onto the cart at Home Depot and it is doing very well and I am going to love it. Here in 6a in general, in my garden's format specifically, real and true climbers are tough. The winter tends to knock them back pretty far in most instances and I grow mine in pots and real climbers do not fit. But Golden Showers, a big fat pillar-shrub, does amazingly for me and I can tell Joseph also will. The colors really are viabrant and it loves to bloom it appears. For the color and age of this one, I was happily surprised that the blooms actually have some "lasting" abilities and do not blow and shatter really fast. So far so good in my collection this year, ZERO blackspot and ZERO mildew despite a cool and damp spring. I do spray and I do spray this one a little extra based on reviews but it is going to be one of my favorites. Love a bright color, and enjoy these "big messy Floribundas".............

There has been many outstanding climbers introduced in the past 10 years or so. Joseph's Coat introduced in 1964 is my favorite by far. I don't know of a rose more appropriately named. At best it is a magical rose with amazing color variation which changes from day to day. The wonderful pictures posted by HMF member "Mashamcl" of San Jose, CA say it all. The rose is appropriately vigorous and remontancy is outstanding. In our climate (Zone 9B) it blooms right through the winter months. Unlike some of the newer cluster blooming climbers of recent vintage this rose will mildew and rust without protection. Jacob's Coat, advertized as an improved version, does not come close. By the way Joseph's Coat is equally enchanting in a vase.
