A rose by any other name ...

So can someone identify it for me ?






I have no idea what it is, but the fragrance is amazing ...

    This rose looks very like one I have at chillhill and one of my dads favourites " Chicago peace""

  2. This is definitely not Chicago peace. Knowing the greek rose market this is probably 'Gipsy'

  3. Just to add that the rose is most probably 'Τσιγγάνα' (Gypsy) as marketed by Avramis nurseries in Northern Greece. Whether this is the same 'Gipsy' as the one known internationaly under this and other names is not so certain. Rose naming is internationally confusing.
