Not Diana?

Not Diana?

I bought this rose winter '08 as a bagged rose to the best of my memory. It still has the label "Diana Princess of Wales" on it but two separate visitors this week have declared that it looks nothing like their Diana rose.
So, what have I got?
The flower is large, like a big pom-pom whan fully out. It is very ruffled and brightly coloured.
The leaves are olive green and strong looking although it does get some black spot.
I don't care that it is not Diana because it is very beautiful anyway.
I would love to know its real name.

Whatever it is, it's gorgeous. Any perfume?

What a beautiful rose ! One year down the track, could I please have some budwood from it please ?
Tomorrow I will try to post here a photo ( taken in my old garden ) of Dianna, Princess of Wales, if I can copy it to my computer from a disc.

I think I've got it! The 2010 Treloar catalogue has a photo in it that is the same as my mis-named rose.
Augusta Luise. Dance Funny how a previous catalogue showed a completely different style of flower in the photo.
I went onto HMF to look at more photos and I am even more convinced. A comment by one grower clinched it when she said it gets black spot badly. Yep, it sure does. >8@ badly
I looked at it the other day to consider whether to propagate it but I thought "Nah", too spotty.
It is a really gorgeous bloomer though so I will put up with the black spot.
