I had this rose growing on my RV space in south Texas. I could not find anyone who knew the variety, so I took this photo. Anyone know what it is? It had unbelievable stems! One measured over 3ft long! It is the most beautiful rose I have ever seen.

It's a beautiful colour! Sorry that I can't help you - sometimes things like the form, the scent, leaf colour etc. are needed in a rose ID - more so than the flower! Good luck with your search for the name of this beauty!

Possibly 'Mr. Lincoln'

That one has long stems and a great red color.

Check on scent

Some of the most powerfully scented roses are also of the most beautiful reds. Others are quite scentless. The slight patterning on the petals could help: is it a change in colour or only of texture? The best reds are both satiny and velvety in texture, but not usually in a 'stripey' way. Mr Lincoln is one possibility. Chrysler Imperial and Papa Meilland are two more. Why don't you do a search on these roses and check what they say about the bush as a whole. That might give you an answer, and also lead you to worthwhile rose sites.

Good luck!

Sorry, I don't know which type of rose is this but I would like to say only one thing that it is awesome. Beth
