someone here will no doubt be able to help me identify this rose.

It was growing at the house when I moved here two years ago, and I suspect it is Peace or Chicago Peace. Am I right?

I may have omitted a reduction step in the process of uploading a photo, so I will have another attempt. Here is another shot of the rose I am identifying as Chicago Peace.

Well I'd almost say 100% that it is not Peace . The top pic i would have said looks a bit too salmony in colour for CP but if the bottom pic is of the same bush , well then it just might be . I have plenty of pix of my Chicago Peace[it's a very photogenic flower] but they are not on this computer .... will have a look and see if I can find a comparison pic for you.

cheers. Rosaie

Chris, this is not a reply to your rose, rather a rap for the shot of the rose it's self, love the first one with water on it, keep them coming.

Welcome, Chris! Looks like Chicago Peace. Are the blooms really big?

Rosaie, yes the photos are of the same rose (just taken a year or so apart!) In real life they come out as a classic bud shape, then unfurl with shades of pink rose on the top and yellow at the bottom - I think. They do appear to fit all the photos I have seen of CP elsewhere.

Dave, they are quite big...they can be 15cm across. The bush is vigorous, and requires a lot of regular light pruning to keep it in bounds.

Chicago Peace Maybe?

Post by Admin on 23rd April 2011, 08:58

Identifying rose based on the flower alone is a risky business. Flowers can change dramatically throughout the year and throughout the range within which it is grown. When trying to ID roses it is best to take a range of diagnostic photos (with that sweet 100mm macro you have Wink ), of features that show less variation. These features include the leaves (old, middle-aged, new), thorns, stipules on the leaves, the shape of the hips, if any, the shape of the flower's receptacle, the flower at various stages (some roses age in a very specific way), etc. Then these can go into the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] forum where you can open a 'case file' on the rose over time. This has been very successful for me over the years. For your rose, the flowers look like 'Chicago Peace' but it could be a range of roses.

"My" computer is still under going brain surgery so I haven't got all my photo files available but this is a pic of a flower on one of my Chicago Peace bushes Chris. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Yes!! That's my rose. When I have time I will do as Simon says (I bet you are sick of hearing that one!) and take the required series of shots.
