Red ones are generally too hard to ID, unless they have some specific characteristic that is different from other reds. But that being said... possibly OLYMPIAD?

RE: Please ID rose for me?

Is it very fragrant? How tall is it? Where did you get or find it?


RE: Please ID rose for me?

Even with the best information possible that could be any one of at least 25 currently available indistinguishable reds.

As Henry said, there are a lot of red hybrid tea roses it could be. More pictures and ANY information you can provide about it might help but it still may be impossible to ID for sure.

Pictures: buds, half open blooms, fully open blooms, new growth, leaves, thorns, canes, entire bush.

Info: how old, where did you buy it, how often does it bloom, how long do the blooms last, what kind of fragrance, how strong.

It looks a lot like Mr. Lincoln to me.

Is this a climber, handg? If so, could it be Crimson Glory, Climbing?
