Can you I.D. this hybrid musk?

This hybrid musk has been growing in our garden for 40+ years. My FIL purchased it, I believe, from ROYAT in the late 1960s or early 1970s. It reminds me of Ballerina, except that it is slightly more double, and a much darker color. Ignore the white on the blooms in this picture - that is just where the sun was hitting the petals when I took the picture.

Any thoughts?

Belinda Hybrid Musk maybe.
I don't have it, but have been looking online at hybrid musk single & semi doubles.

RE: Can you I.D. this hybrid musk?

Ruth - thanks, I think you found it! Same blossoms, and also the leaves look identical. I appreciate your research - this is one of the last "unknown" roses in my garden - when we moved in here there were dozens of them.


RE: Can you I.D. this hybrid musk?

I agree. I have a Belinda from Vintage that looks very similar to that.

RE: Can you I.D. this hybrid musk?

Thanks so much! Now I have written it in ink on my rose list. No wonder it reminds me of Ballerina! Same hybridizer (Bentall), and introduced one year apart (1936 and 1937)!
