"Judit! is the name of this one. The label indicates its origin as Romanian and there is a reference t Wagner too. But I can find no further reference to this rose.
I have a small garden in Rome, Italy. Some open soil, some concrete, some paved. Temperatures in winter occasionally down to 0C. Summer temperatures up to 40C in the shade. There are never watering restrictions but, of course, there is little natural water for much of June, July and August.

To start the 'Ks' we have 'Karen Blixen'. A little more about the rose can be found here https://www.helpmefind.com/rose/l.php?l=2.3578.0

What a lovely rose. Lovely enough to start off the day. I must be off to do some more grouting.
I garden in Cyprus, in a flat old farming field, alt. approx. 30 m asl.

Lovely Rose  with an interesting name. Looks as if it is as strong as the person it was named after.....

Another rose presumably named after someone. 'Katie Gordon'. A very quick search on the internet came up with nothing. Work is calling me so I can't look any further at the moment. However, if I do find any more information, I'll post the link.

As the name suggests, something a little smaller for today. 'Kleiner Ritter'. A little info here http://www.helpmefind.com/rose/l.php?l=2.76425.0

Another "mystery" rose for today, 'Korlausblas'. The label shows this name and the supplier (breeder?) as Kordes, Germany.  They can be found here https://www.kordes-rosen.com/ but there is no sign of this rose.

'Korunrok' is another rose listed under Kordes but with no trace of it either on their German or Italian site. There is mention of 'KORunrok' as one of the parents of another rose, 'Soul Sister', here http://www.helpmefind.com/rose/l.php?l=2.67470

Sorry, a correction. The new hybrid I refer to immediately above as 'Soul Sister' is, in fact, named 'KORconvent'.

David, one or two other sites very briefly mention Korunrok as a cream apricot floribunda which won a Rome prize in 2004.

Certainly is a nice colour and form, Alisdair. I'm not surprised it won a prize. The prize giving in Rome is around June when the gardens are open to the public. Thanks for the extra information  :)

I must say that the rose that I photographed, 'La Belle Rouge', and the photo in the link look like very different roses. http://www.helpmefind.com/rose/l.php?l=2.32837.0

The picture of it here https://rozenvrienden.be/pdf/Nieuwsbrief%20juli-augustus%202018.pdf looks much more like your picture, David - maybe it's just that real life is a bit different from its publicity pictures!

I think you are right Alisdair. A bit like comparing me first thing in the morning when I look at myself in the mirror and what miracles can be achieved in selfies with just the right amount of lighting and a well-chosen angle. Here is the last rose for a couple of days as I am away to Naples this evening for a break. 'La Feiullerie' with some information here http://helpmefind.com/rose/l.php?l=2.65571
