Happy happy pinkness 💗! Now I’ve always thought this one was princess Alexandra as she came with me from the old garden, but I’m seeing a lot of your Gertrude Jekyll and I’m thinking is that actually who she really is? #rose #pink #colourpop #shrubrose #

Smell it! If it is very heavily scented, it certainly looks a lot like Gertrude... 🤔

David Austin says Princess A smells of “fresh tea, changing to lemon, eventually...blackcurrant” https://www.davidaustinroses.co.uk/princess-alexandra-of-kent-standard-rose whereas Gertrude smells of “Old rose” and is also very early to start flowering. Does that help?

Just been for a sniff and she isn’t very strong scented, I can sort smell the tea though. I think I’ll stick with Alexandra! Thanks for humouring me 😍 @awomanonabike

I think it’s Alexandra judging by the scent! @solly1961 💗
