I bought this plant which was suppost to be coral in colour from a local nursery. It was near death when i bought it and had black spot etc. I have managed to nurse it back to health and it started flowering last week but it is not coral in colour. Any idears what it could possibly be as i have names for most of my roses.

It reminds me of Etoile d'Hollande http://www.classicroses.co.uk/products/roses/etoile-de-hollande-climber/ but it's hard to be certain.  

Have a look at the Classic Roses site (link above) and look at other deep red climbers and see what you think.

If it is Etoile d'Hollande, with a bit more tlc it should grow into quite a robust climber.

It does very much look like this one. Hopefully it will take off this season
