What Is This Rose?


Anyone have any ideas what kind of rose bush this is?

There are so many roses, I would be surprised if anyone can get the variety in these photos. It does look like some variety of old fashioned double pink with its short stems and loose open form. Will be surprised if you get anything other than general comments.

Looks like Celsiana.

Celsiana is a once flowering rose with a very strong damask fragrance. Depending on where you live, it should be blooming in May or June. I first saw one about 50 years ago, and have always been enamored with it.

Definitely one of the greatest classic roses.
