My late mother had a rose that was grown as a cutting from her grandmothers rose garden. I am very new to gardening, but I have managed to grow several cuttings (luck > judgement).

It would be wonderful to know more about the rose. Especially if its a climber or not.

I think it might be a hybrid tea(?):

Rose to identify

More pictures, of these roses, are at Google Photos.

It's the pink one in the pictures (the fully grown one is my mothers, the ones in pots are my cuttings). I'm less interested in the peach coloured rose...but for a bonus point?

    You haven't mentioned fragrance - is there any to the flowers? And its difficult to tell how many petals are in an open flower, can you count them please? What makes you wonder if its a climber or not?

  • Bamboo, one can count the petals for an ID on roses? At least to find if climber, tea, floribunda? Huh! I've never even tried to ID someone's rose...overwhelming.

Could it be Rosa 'Buxom Beauty'? Pink, hybrid tea, strong scent, Award of Garden Merit RHS in 2012, but much older that that.
