Rose Listing Omission

My Caroline

Heirloom roses website lists this pink and white HT rose. It is hardy to zone 5b, and moderately fragrant.

Thank you Dianne. ‘My Caroline’ added.
I have presumed this was introduced by Heirloom USA and not Heirloom Canada?
Their website show only a code of DOR and I wonder of this could be a Francois Dorieux II rose?

This rose would be a florist's dream. It has a constant and prolific supply of long-stemmed, long-lasting blooms of perfect form, even in 100-degree weather (at least, here in the dry heat in Idaho). I have been amazed. The height here is listed as 33". My bush is about 4.5 feet on average.

I had wondered if it descended from 'Belle Epoque' like many other Fryer roses from that time do.

'Belle Epoque' turns that ghost grey-buff when it gets extremely hot and dry, and the foliage is somewhat similar. Form is obviously better. Fryer's also uses 'Pot of Gold' descendents, which can also give ghostly colors, which makes me also consider that as a possibility, as well.

This rose in my garden is a huge monster, growing at least 15 feet tall and even wider than 15 feet. It has mainly a spring bloom that lasts for 6 weeks. I should prune to see if it would help with a second bloom.

The fragrance is listed as mild to none, but guests to my garden have commented on its lovely fragrance.
