Fermi your roses are so beautiful and desirable. Shame you are so far away for a quick visit.
You'd always be welcome, Charithea ;D
Here's a different rose which we think might be a seedling. It's a semi-rambling semi-double pink,
cheers

Many garden centres here relied for years, and some still do, on obtaining roses from Holland. In the main these tended to suffer under the conditions they were expected to cope with. However, one of our favourite suppliers brings many of his roses in from Avramis Roses in Greece and they cope much better, having been grown in a similar climate.
Our latest acquisition is one labelled 'Gartentraume', a scented shrub with pink flowers.

So agree about the importance of knowing the provenance of plants, not just roses. Many things are imported from Holland into Italy and, even if subjects suitable to our climate, often fail to establish well. Not a huge fan of roses as I have probably stated before but that is particularly attractive John with the frilled edges to the petals.......and of course scented- what is a rose without scent🙄

Roses don't do very well  in the heat of the Cyprus summer, in our garden, so I have decided to grow them in big pots and keep them under the trees. It means checking them daily  when the weather warms up . Here is a photo of my new rose.  It is supposed to be a David Austin rose but the supplier gave me only its catalogue number.  I have not had success in discovering its name yet.
I garden in Cyprus, in a flat old farming field, alt. approx. 30 m asl.

That rose is doing very well - as Elvis Costello sings "it's been a good year for the roses"! We had decent rain through the winter and spring and a lot of trees and shrubs are showing their appreciation!

One of the roses in the garden which might be a parent of the preceding rose which a friend has suggested might be Rosa 'Iced Parfait' though it isn't "thornless or near thornless"
