The next three photos are of the rose bush.
So is there a way to figure out what kind of rose you have?
Any good web resources to help ID one?
It is more curiosity than anything.
There is a 40+ year old rose bush on the property. It is huge...7-8
feet high, 10 wide, 4 feet deep with runners along one wall going
another 10 feet. INisde the bush are some primary canes/trunks that
are 1" round and look more like a tree trunk than a rose bush.
There are a few pictures there showing size and some details of the
leaves/flowers. ALthough yahoo downsizes them to a lower quality.
They having mostly five leaves but some are three leaved stems.
The leaves are glossy/waxy (not a treatment). Tiny serrated edges on
the leaves. Pale pink flowers, with multiple buds in a cluster on
short stems from the cane. many layered petals with yellow ?stamen?
inside. Buds appear to have five green sides, that peel back to expose
flower. Heavily thorned, with thorns being reddish, sometimes
orange(probably an age thing). The woody trunks are chocolate colored,
glossy with white parallel crackling, and the thorns are white.
