There have been several roses named 'Sylvia' through the ages but more about this one can be found here https://www.helpmefind.com/rose/l.php?l=2.16733.2
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.

No garden but two balconies, one facing south and the other north.
Most of my plants are succulents which need little care

Welcome back David.  Yes,  the colour is lovely Hilary. I am broadening my horizons colour wise.
I garden in Cyprus, in a flat old farming field, alt. approx. 30 m asl.

The label in the Rose Garden, Rome for this rose reads "'Ursula' Germania". There are one or two possible candidates here https://www.helpmefind.com/rose/plants.php?searchNmTyp=5&searchNm=ursula&rid=4072&sbSearch=SEARCH&tab=1

The rose for today, one of the last as I am coming to the end of the alphabet, is 'Victor Hugo'. More here https://www.helpmefind.com/rose/l.php?l=2.5682.2&tab=1

The photographs here (apart from the one of a chrysanthemum of the same name) https://www.helpmefind.com/gardening/l.php?l=2.42884.1&tab=1 do more justice to this rose than mine. 'Ville de Caen'.
