A wonderful 3rd flush on my unknown dark red rose. It has a wonderful sweet scent but is very prone to black spot that it happly passes on to all my other roses including ones that are ment to be resistant to it.

🤞 @hkyfvr the only problem is its been grown from a cutting I took from a rose in the front garden of a student house I lived in there wasn't a label on the original plant. I suspect its a tea rose of some sort from the scent but thats as far as ive got in about 18 year

The first flower on my unknown dark red #rose possibly a #tearose but I'm not sure. I call it my Hereford rose as I took it as a cutting from a rose in the front garden of a student house I lived in in Hereford.
