We have an intense yellow unknown rose. Can anyone identify it?
It's oldish, possibly 1970's or earlier.

This link shows an unknown rose found in the Cilento National Park in Southern Italy.

It looks very much like a Tea to me and is very striking for its bicolour effect. I thought it would be interesting to link here in case the Tea Rose ladies haven't come across it before, or might even recognise it as a variety they grow. It's very pretty.

There are other found roses on this site, but this one took my fancy.

At our park, the California Nursery Historical Park, in Fremont, we have an old AARS test garden. The California Nursery Company was a test site and went out of business around 1972. A kind neighbor watered the rose bed for 48 years. He planted a few new roses in the garden. But many look old enough to have been there since 1969-1972. I am going to post some photos of one of the roses whose petals go from magenta to red to orange and to yellow. Seems like it should be easy to ID?
This bush does not look as old as some of the oldest bushes, so this might not be an AARS contestant.
Could this be 'Flaming Peace'?

Can anyone help me Id this rose? It was my great-grandmothers, she was born in 1916. I think it’s 60-70+ years old, and my great grandpa bought it for her as an anniversary gift. It’s been transplanted probably 8-10 times, she moved it to each new house so it was quite important to her.
The rose is grafted.
It has 25 petals.
Beautiful strong fragrance. If the breeze is right, I can smell it on the patio
I’ve had success at getting a cutting to root so now I have two.

Could be, 'Talisman'.
Reply #2 of 8 posted 1 JUN by Margaret Furness
I wondered about that too, but the Talisman description says "Thornless or almost".

'Talisman' has thorns, (prickles). They are moderately well spaced as compared to many.

You will note, "Thornless or almost", is almost like default setting here at HMF.

I don't know why so many are listed this way but I've noted in most cases it is incorrect.

My rose is very lightly thorned.

I no longer have Talisman, but the prickles on the photo I posted are similar to those on your rose - some almost straight, some slightly down-curved.

I'm fairly certain your rose is, 'Talisman'.

It was very popular, sold far and wide, about the time your GGrandmother would have acquired it.

Umm, yes. It seems to usually mean "Thornless, or almost, when compared to horribly spiky monsters like Mermaid or Rose primula, and if you are feeling exceptionally charitable".

It also look's like "Fred Edmunds".
