Can anyone identify my friend's rose?

My friend inherited this rose when she moved to her present house 8 years ago.  She says it is a strong grower.  You can see the blooms emerging as a strong yellow, fading to a softer yellow as they mature.  She'd love to know what it is!

    Very pretty. I don't know (and my eyes aren't great) but it looks quite a bit like my Arthur Bell.
  • I was going to say Arthur Bell.  I have it as a climber.  Do the buds have a red edge when they open?  Mine smells gorgeous.

    Thank you - I've passed this on to my friend.

    @didyw The leaves on Arthur Bell are a dark green and very shiny. I have only ever seen this rose a picture of health.

    wow, Allium, stunning. How many years did it take to get him that big? I think mine might eventually need better supports, looking at that... perhaps a similar pergola type job.

    great rose, isn't it, Suze? Sometimes things are deservedly popular and Arthur falls into that category.
