Rose identification

TadsTads Posts: 210

This most glorious rose bush, I inherited, so I don't know its name?  Can someone kindly identify it for me?  Is it a hybrid?  Is it a tea rose?.  I think its an "old rose" - the bush was planted more than 12 years ago - and a prolific flowerer with a strong & delightful perfume; its a joy, & I can't resist picking a couple of blooms because they introduce a wonderful perfume throughout a room.

    HI Tads. Its hard to identify roses as there are so many and lots look very similar. Your rose looks like one called Just Joey but, as I said, it could be one of many.
