Light pink Hybrid Perpetual.
Exhibition name: Bessie Johnson
Bred by Curtis, Sanford, & Co. (United Kingdom, 1872).
Introduced in Australia by George Brunning - St. Kilda Nurseries in 1876 as 'Bessie Johnson'.
Hybrid Perpetual.  
Blush.  Strong fragrance.  Very large, double (17-25 petals) bloom form.  Blooms in flushes throughout the season.  
Armed with thorns / prickles.  
USDA zone 6b through 9b (default).  Vigorous.  
The rose in gardens seems to be the parent 'Abel Grand', to which 'Bessie Johnson' probably sported back at one time.
