That's so pretty, Lerosier! :-) But sorry, no idea what it is.

No clue here. Are the stipules fringie?

hi, Lerosier,

It reminds me of the floribunda, 'Escapade'. My bush is pretty young, but the blooms and bush shape look like your pictures.

I can take pictures of mine if you'd like to compare "body parts'.

the stipules have smooth edges.

Then it's not 'La Marne.' That does have fringed stipules. I'm more inclined to think of a Floribunda of some sort.

Look at the size of the stigma in the center of the flower; the fine texture of the stamen and the tiny size of the anthers. Those are strongly multiflora poly. Escapade, while of that background has significantly larger, coarser parts. I've torn up more flowers of both for pollen and to pollinate each one than I can remember. Also, La Marne does not always show the fringed stipules. Here is La Marne foliage, highly water and heat stressed here right now. You can't describe them as "fringed", but under extreme magnification, you can see they are at least "glandular". Kim

I thought 'Escapade' also!
