Grafted rose ID

AHRAHR Posts: 361
this rose didn’t survive when we move late last year. The rose that it has been grafted to has started growing and is currently in flower. Dose anyone know the the rose? And is it worth keeping?

    It looks possibly like a type of rugosa root stock .

    ...your rootstock rose is Rosa corymbifera 'Laxa'...  it flowers for a short time May/June but then if you don't deadhead it, you will get large red hips in autumn, which are actually very nice to look at, and one of the best roses for culinary purposes... its hips are very good for cooking with, so I'm told..

    ...if you keep it, it will grow very large in time...

    ...there is some evidence in your photo, that your original patio rose is still alive, I'm not certain, I can't see it clearly enough to be sure... maybe not,... it's a bit of a mess ..

    Neither leaves or flowers fit with Rosa rugosa.
    Maybe the much daintier Rosa canina..common name dog rose
