Help with Identification Please

Post by paulh on 23rd December 2013, 02:30

A little while back I bought a Paradise rose, however since it bloomed I realised that it is not the right rose. So I got in touch with Swiss roses where I bought it from, they confirmed that I didn't get a Paradise rose and offered to replace it. I've decided to keep it because it's a nice rose, so Swiss will give me a paradise at a discounted price of $10. Cool bananas.

Below are some photos of the rose I got by mistake, I can't work out  what it is and Swiss are not sure either, it is a bi colour, so any suggestions would be great.

strange that swiss don't know their own rose. Did you email them the picture of the rose or physically showed them?....

If they don't do the budding themselves then confusion can occur either with the labelling, the budding or the initial collection of the buds.

A few years ago we purchased 3 roses from a nursery that were all marked as Penelope Tea with the owner of the nursery showing us the plant that the buds were taken from. The buds were sent to SA for budding onto rootstock but the resulting plants were nothing like the Penelope that we were shown. We ended up a Safrano, a Mrs Dudley Cross and a Purple flowing rose that we would have Buckley's of identifying.

Yep Jordan your right, fortunately they will swap them over, I had 1 nursery that told me to keep the rose and gave me the one it should have been as well

Well I went back to Swiss Roses last week to pick up the said Paradise rose and this time it is the right rose.
I did keep the other rose, I also took some photos to show Rudi for identification, in his opinion he says it is the rose Las Vegas.

What do others think????

This is a photo of Las Vegas I found on the net..

Thanks roseman, the label that Swiss supplied just shows the flower colour as warm red all over, with no hint of any reverse colour.

After looking at HMF and other photos I found in the Mr Google image search, I am now leaning to the same mind that you have expressed.

Last November I bought one Las Vegas. Hoping that I received the correct rose once it flowers I shall put the pictures. Is it possible to have pics of the young growth the buds the stems and leaves of the plant?
