Does anybody know , which of the two roses we can see on the photos , is the true Birdie Blye ?

Early descriptions of 'Birdie Blye' seem to favor the darker candidate: eg. rosy-carmine 1905, deep pink 1919, sometimes magenta 1929, carmine 1930, and carmine-pink 1936. I believe the darker 'Birdie Blye' in cultivation is at least partially from a re-introduction by the Huntington of my collection of an unknown shrub rose called "Ramacita" in a garden near Alamos, Sonora, Mexico in the 1970's.

Cab this rose be used as a screen hedge rose and does it repeat?

This is a nice, hardy shrub which has two flushes of flowers during the summer. It will grow to about 4 or 5 feet tall and could be used as a hedge.
