Does anyone go to the Name That Rose forum? :) It would be nice, love this site and all the others too!! Thanks!
Yes, I go to the Name that rose forum at least once a week. I try to help where I can. I like trying to ID the roses but sometimes it can take time to do research on them. And a lot of times there just isn't enough information to make a positive ID. There are THOUSANDS of roses and unless there are very definite characteristics to a rose it may be very difficult to match up to a specific name. The more information a poster can give the better the chances are but realistically a lot of pink/red/white/yellow/mauve/orange roses all look very similar.
Hey fellow Michigander! Thanks for your reply, I totally understand the difficulty in id'ing a rose. My neighbor gave me that rose from her bush,my guess is it may be a popular rose bought at a local nursery or big box store. Just a guess. She says if she hears the name she'll remember it.
P.S i have a couple other "unknowns" I may post soon, hope someone can help, really appreciate it!
