Isn't this lovely

I bought 6 lost label roses and this one has just bloomed. I've never seen one quite so beautiful.


It's a shame because it was a lost label rose I might never know what it is called

    Did you get them from J.Parker, they sell lost label roses cheaply.

  • It could be Handel or a rose called Nostalgia,  Its lovely.

    That is one of the most beautiful I've ever seen.  Is it 'Sweetness'?

     I agree - Handel - I've grown it too, and a friend had the climbing version on the front of her cottage - beautiful image

  • Thanks everyone! Yes I did buy them from Parkers last autumn. The lost label roses appear to be fine but 2 climbers I bought at the same time snuffed it over the winter image
