Just making sure this guy is ID properly. There were two stickers on the pot. Just want to know for care. Ramblin red is a climber so I want to know if i should build some minor hardscaping for it.

I'd have to say it does look like it but there are quite a few other reds that look like that as well.

I'm not so sure it is....I can't see the canes too well, but they don't look thorny enough to be RR - it is viciously covered with armor in my garden, one of those I handle cautiously even when gloved.
What did the other label say?

I'm not good at rose ID, but I'd have to chime in on the "probably not" camp. It looks more true red than my Ramblin' Red, which always has a pinkish crimson cast. Maybe it's my weather, though - I don't know. The color is more like my Dublin Bay, but I don't remember that one showing the stamens. How about one of the Explorers, since you're in Canada? I think something like George Vancouver is a red with showy yellow stamens?

Don't trust my opinions, though, since this isn't really my skill area

If I remember right the other tag said "red rugosa". Ill have to take some pictures as the summer goes along i gues?

I would say with pretty good certainty that it is RR. As a mature plant, it is very thorny as Ann Cecilia pointed out, but on an immature plant with non-hardened canes, you can't really judge it solely based on that. It is definitely not Dublin Bay, nor a Rugosa.

All this said, there are a number of reds that look very similiar, but I do believe it to be an immature RR.

Thanks! Here is a recent picture of it. There is very little wood from last year because I didnt mulch it in the slightest.
