Rosarian Needed: Can You Identify this Rose?

I bought this rose about 9 years ago and it has been planted in this clay pot ever since. I occasionally add some compost as a top dressing, and toss in a handful of organic fertilizer a few times a year. I never spray it or treat it. I water it deeply when it needs it, but for the most part – I leave it alone and it blooms just about all summer. The bloom color is pink which becomes yellow towards the center. It does not have a strong perfume fragance, but more a light faint one. Can anyone tell me what kind of rose this is and the variety?

  1. By its growth habit, I would say grandiflora. It could be Pink Parfait. Was introduced in 1960, so not sure how widely available it would have been 10 yrs ago.

    Could also be Chicago Peace, a hybrid tea. I have seen hybrid tea roses take on grandiflora habits….

    Hope this helps!

    Jackie, I’m not sure. Is it on its own roots? It appears not to be grafted. Where did you purchase it? Big box store or ARE? Does it have China qualities? In other words, how cold tender is it, and do the blooms darken as they age? Let me know, and I may have an idea of its type at least. I have a mystery apricot rose. I bought it without a tag at a local feed store. Never been able to name it, so my friend, Katie, calls it ‘Katie’s Envy.’~~Dee

      I believe I got it at a box store about 10 years ago. It is very cold hardy and has survived the past 2 cold Houston winters. It stays evergreen all year round. Blooms do not darken. About 1/2 of the petal is pink and closer to the center it fades into a pale yellow, giving it an apricot glow – kinda reminds me of a ruby red grapefruit color.

  3. I am a lover of roses. I have a rose that I bought a while back from Robertsons Nursery in Pasadena. It was about 11 years ago and it looks like this rose. Wondering if its a Tiffany Hybrid Tea Rose. Beautiful pink but with a yellow base at bottom. Very hardy and has lasted through freezes and a move from one home to another.

      I think it may be yours! Same color, time frame and hardiness. Mine stays green all winter too. Thank you for mentioning it.

  4. It reminds me of the Peace Rose I purchased some years back. Lovely pink with the hint of yellow. I hope it is stilling being enjoyed by the owners of my former home!

      Yes that is a lovely rose. It does look similar, but mine has more pink. I only see yellow near the base of the petals.

  5. I agree with Chris – it looks very much like Pink Parfait. If it is, the flower should have 23 petals.

  6. My sister bought a home with three rose beds in the yard. They have not been taken care of in several years. We need help identifying them so we can understand how to care for them.
