Is this some kind of rose?

The stem is thorny but the flowers aren’t really rose-like.

    Yes it’s a rose … a single flowered form instead of a multi-petalled type. 

    Some of my favourite roses are single flowered varieties. Take a look here

    It has flowers like the rose "Ballerina".

    Oh wow, that’s some great insight, thanks. Yes it looks similar to ballerina. I must look after this one. Hopefully it will grow much better in the future if I know it’s routine maintenance.
