Rose type ID

RobmarstonRobmarston Posts: 228
I have the roses pictured in my garden. They were here when we moved in last year so pretty established. Two I have moved successfully. I know it might not be possible to name them, but can anyone tell me what type of rose are they? They grow very tall and are almost thornless. They can withstand all kinds of weather without staking and flower beautifully.  I would like to grow more of this kind but have no idea what to look for. I would like other colours so the exact name is not important. If they are a normal bush rose, how would I get them to grow tall like this? Thanks for any help.

    ...look for Hybrid Tea or Floribunda roses with a height of 4 foot or more, and you will get roses with similar results... if you are really keen I can let you know of a nursery who supplies roses suitable for exhibition.. they grow tall and upright..
    ..otherwise, if you just want more of what you already have there, look for a rose called 'Queen Elizabeth'..
    best wishes..
