Name of rose
« on: October 20, 2022, 02:12:43 PM »
Does anybody recognize this lovely rose, which is flowering now here in Halkidiki (northern Greece)?

I have seen it in my neighbours garden as well as at the Aristotle's Park in Stageira (500 m. above sea), where this photo was taken. It is tall and rambling, the flower has a slightly spicy scent.

Could it be Rosa Cocktail?

Oron Peri identified this climbing/ rambling rose, many years ago, as Rosa cocktail

It grows against the walls of several houses in Sparta, Lakonia

Thank you,Hillary, it really looks very muck like 'Rosa Cocktal', seems to be  easy to find it here in Greece.
