Is this really Gertrude Jekyll? The colour is so disappointing.
I ordered it from DA as a bareroot in 2020 and planted it out late winter/early spring 2020. I was really disappointed with the colour when it flowered a few months later - I thought it couldn’t be Gertrude Jekyll.
I’ve never knowingly seen a Gertrude Jekyll in the flesh, even so the colour of mine looks nothing like online or catalogue images, even accounting for colours translating differently on different monitors. GJ looks a deeper, saturated pink, while mine’s a pale Barbie / bubble gum pink. Ugh!
I meant to contact DA that year about it but I forgot to take photos of the blooms in time.
I posted earlier for advice as I moved the rose (a climber) and it then sulked very badly https://forum.gardenersworld.com/discussion/1053006/i-moved-a-rose-it-s-now-sulking-badly-help-please#latest
Since then it’s put on growth and buds - though
recently some of the newer leaves look a bit anaemic - may be down chlorosis or
