    I have an "Iceberg" and it is not as multi headed as this rose, there are approximately five flower heads to each stem. I have been through most rose books to no avail. It is a beautiful rose with a soft pink tinge, thank you for your suggestion. Regards Paul

    oh ok... When approx. was the rose planted?
    is it scented?   and what are the thorns like.. ?..

    Too much sun on the photo to be sure, but could you show me a close up of one.. thanks..   also does it repeat flower all summer?..

    Hello... I've been able to enlarge and zoom in on your photo by copying it to my computer... I hope you didn't mind me doing that, as I couldn't enlarge it before... and I now believe your rose to be 'William and Catherine'... named after the royal couple...

    ...the foliage is correct, and also the bloom shape and clusters... another telling feature that I can pick up is that the centre petals are small and inward facing, around the button eye... which is typical for that rose..  buds have a pink streak, and the blooms are pale pink/apricot tinted on opening..


    ..best wishes...

    I think you are spot on because I planted the rose about 8 years ago so that would tie in nicely. It is a beautiful rose and has no problems, thank you for all your research that was very kind of you. I have more rose with no names, so you will proably hear from me again. Best Regards Paul
