The orange is not a true orange. There is no visible pelargonidin present. The color is like that of some noisette tea lines bred into the reds of chinas and OGRs, which they referred to as vermillion at the time. It's not too different from 'Paul's Scarlet Climber' in color.

The prickles indicate its not purely from multiflora. The stems and prickles remind me of Trier's. The foliage looks between polyantha from multifloras and noisette/musk.

Which of of our standard colours would suit better? I’ve changed it from orange to orange-red.

Visually it's carmine red upon opening. When it ages, it's a light cherry red with a small white eye.

The opening buds have that poly-tea look, which is interesting. That sort of tiny tea bud, but with a cubic swirl to the immature outer petals.

I was expecting this rose would be like Orange Morsdag or similar, but that's not the case. Its in between the Mother's Day types (compact poly) and the Orange Triumph (lanky poly) types in terms of plant architecture.
