Rose Id





I would like to Id these two roses if possible . They are both well grown , and have been in the garden for years .The second rose is a very beautiful rose , very fragrant and will flood the garden with its scent in the evenings . Its grown to about 6 feet in height , and has hardly any barbs on the branches.

The  top rose is a robust plant ,grows to about 7feet high ,flowers profusely twice in the year , no scent to speak of and is full of thorns , terrible to tidy up .but well worth the pain . Hope its not an impossible ask ,Thank you , Wendy.


  • Sorry ,the photos are in the wrong order , hope you can work it out.

  • Didn`t have success when I first posted this last year, hoping for better luck this time .Thanks Wendy .

    The top one looks like Queen Elizabeth. I have one I inherited that grows 6 ft tall.

  • Hello again , I`ve looked at your suggestions and have decided the top light pink rose is Logan`s suggestion Celeste . It seems to tick all the boxes , colour ,leaves  scent and thornless . Fidgets`s Queen Elizabeth comes very close but from the description it doesn`t quite fit . Thank you all for your interest . Wendy .
