Betty White Rose

Could this rose be Betty White? I found this unlabeled at a local big box store. The supplier of their roses occasionally sells unlabeled Romanticas and other Star roses.

It has an unusual scent that reminds me of the Austin myrrh scent, but it is extremely unlikely that it's an Austin rose. It has a very cupped rounded bud.

Does anyone know if this could be Betty White or does it remind you of another rose?

RE: Betty White Rose

My guess is no. My Betty White does not smell like myrrh. It has a very nice fragrance that smells more like perfume. Plus my Betty White is more cupped.

I know we're in vastly different zones LOL but my guess is it's a kind of Austin.

It's very pretty!


RE: Betty White Rose definitely has an odd myrrh, licorice, spice scent. It does not smell like a fruity or damask rose scent. Here's some more pictures of it in different stages of development. It looks more cupped in these:
