What climbing/rambling rose is this?

Posted: 14/06/2013 at 19:45

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.

My cardinalis seem to be growing very slowly I have grown them from seeds and while all my other plants are quite large my cardinalis seem to be growing very slowly. I am just wandering if anyone else has grown them from seed.

Also are they a bit of nightmare for reseeding themselves or do they not reeseed in out climate. Mine only have 2 leaves on a few inches of stems also.

They all get pretty large, There are small varietys such as new dawn but the can still reach heights of 8m. Saying that you can prune them back after flowering to keep them under control.
