Help me identify this rose. Does anyone recognise what rose this might be? It happily grows to about 4 foot and has a beautiful fragrance. This pic was taken in June.

Hi Shane, this looks like Gertrude Jekyll. It has the most amazing fragrance of any rose I know 🌸🌸🌸 By adding #plantid more people will see your post - and tell me if I’m right 😉

@awomanonabike It could be Gertrude, it's hard to say. Harlow Carr came to mind aswell ??

Thanks for suggestions. I am also considering if it could perhaps be Geoff Hamilton?

@lanehead Yes it looks similar to Geoff Hamilton too! Could you compare the leaf size/shape maybe to narrow it down? Or the rosebuds maybe? 🌹
