The rose was in my garden when we moved here nearly 18 years ago, it was long and arching and very overgrown (dont think it had ever been pruned) and i pruned it back hard - it has lethal thorns on it - not many gaps between them! The flowers are just so beautiful and scented too and I would love to know its name.

Hi, Jacqui,
Hard to say - there are so many rose cultivars out there! My, guess, however, given its age and size, is it could be 'Tequila Sunrise' or 'Piccadilly' - how does the colour change as the flower ages? I also thought it could be 'Konfetti' or 'Circus' but they tend to be grown primarily for florists.

Hi Kathy

Thanks for your response - I checked both those and don't believe it is either as the branches (?) reached easily 9 feet at least, in the days before I got tough with it and started pruning it back hard. At the moment its shooting up to about 3 feet from pruned back stump and growing fast!

Thanks anyway.
Jacqui
