    Hello!
    I just bought a 130 year old farmhouse and there is a huge rose bush that I haven't been able to identify thru any rose identifications sources I've found. Its approx 13 feet tall right now, been in bloom for about a month and continues to bloom, not very fragrant in my opinion and is deep pink, almost red, with lighter pink and white seemingly all painted on the rose. The centers are yellow and even the petal is yellow at the center when it first blooms. I have pictures and I have uploaded them. Anyone know what it is and maybe how old it might be? THANKS!!! :)

    wow! You're good! :)

    Ok, so at least I know its not antique... its actually pretty new since this rose is reportedly first introduced in 1999! :) I have so many plants and flowers on this property and just trying to identify and learn all I can about them is a process! :)

    Thanks again!!!
