Hi, further update - Peter Beales Rose thought it was Zephrine Drouhin and in the meantime someone else siggested McCartney rose. I googled it and it is the one - given to Paul McCartney for his birthday by his record company. Mystery solved

Thank you Mike. I know there are literally thousands of variety and agree it will be extremely difficult to identify any rose by photos only.

Hi pansyface, thank you for the link. That IS a beautiful rose too, but I don't think that's what my neighbour's got. I've just emailed Peter Beales Roses but was unable to attach the photos. I'll see if they email me back.

I know it may be a tough question knowing there are thousands of roses in the world, but I'd really like to know the name of this rose in my neighbour's garden so that I could buy one for myself. The owner didn't plant it so has no idea. It's about 8 ft tall and has lovely smell. Any idea?

Plant id please

Hi Ladybird, thank you for quick response.  My garden lacks spring colour after daffodils have died so your help is much appreciated!
