Any rose experts out there? - ID please.

I would love to know what this rose might be. It is truly beautiful and somewhat unusual. It is a fairly large bush planted by the house developers near my house. I try to dead-head and give it a prune as the gardeners just attack it in autumn with hedge trimmers!  The numerous blooms vary between delicate pinky-white/ivory/pale peach/beigey-white, all on 
the same bush.



  • To get a decent chance at identification you may want to add a couple of shots of the growing habit of the bush and a close up of the leaves @Lyn Plant-Wells

    Looks a bit like Macmillan Nurse by Peter Beales, but with fewer petals.

  • Hello  Yes the rose colour looks very like MacMillan Nurse - which would be appropriate as there is a MacMillan hospice on the island and several MacMillan shops, which are well supported by the islanders. However, the petals do look too numerous.
    It is also very like Glyndebourne. I will try to get some shots of the bush/leaves and see if that confirms the latter.  
  • Hello @Lyn Plant-Wells, were you able to ID your rose in the end?  I was just wondering as I am checking out Glyndebourne as a potential for my garden and your rose above is beautiful.

    I feel fairly confident that's 'Champagne Moment'...

    edited to say, I recall another thread about this from the same member and I think it was established then, maybe Nollie suggested it was this rose? can't remember exactly, but I think it was agreed.   I have it in my garden so it reminds me of this rose.

  • Aw, if it's Champagne Moment it is a little small for my space, shame as it's just the colour I'm obsessing about :# Thanks Marlorena and Nollie.

    That’s right Marlorena, it was just a guess but Lyn thought it looked right, how is yours doing? And did you get one Lyn or have success with cuttings?

  • MarlorenaMarlorena Posts: 8,422's doing ok @Nollie  in a pot.  The Spring foliage is very nice, dark burgundy colour almost..  the blooms fade to white and can look a bit muddled in doing so.. as VS says, it's likely too small for her purposes, I've not seen it much above 3 feet..

  • Victoria- the bush I took the original cutting from is pretty big. 
    My cuttings are now approx 4’ tall.
    Here are more pics. I will try to post a photo of the original bush - site is saying present file is too big.
    The last pics above is of the ‘cuttings’ in bloom last year in my garden. (Second pic is the cuttings   a few months after taken.)
