Maybe 'Joyfulness'??. I'm only guessing.

It does look very much 'Lorraine Lee' to me. You should be able to tell it by it's distinctive fragrance, comparing it to known specimens.

Thank you for the feed back. I look forward to Spring when I can compare fragrances. Would it be safe for me to move all OPH26 E01 photos to Lorraine Lee, Alister Clark Hybrid Gigantea, Tea?

Maybe wait for more responses before reassigning the photos. 'Lorraine Lee' is an excellent winter-flowerer. I'm not sure how well it would fare in Canberra, but if it's flowering there now or at least looking like it isn't dormant, that would be another reason to suggest 'Lorraine Lee' as an identity.

Both the Lorraine Lee climbers and bush on the Tennis courts still have the odd flower. This specimen threw me as it is on the small size (although it has to be pruned back hard because there are so many roses within such as small garden). I will hold off just in case more comments come through.

Would anyone please be able to confirm if this climber is Daydream or point me in the direction of other possibilities. It is located where Queen of Hearts, Clark, A. should of been planted. It would most likely be an Alister Clark rose.

It looks about right, but I don’t grow it. How does HRG167 J10 compare with the Daydream at HRG167 J14?

Hi Patricia,
I had initially compared this rose to its neighbour and they were pretty much identical. I just thought on the side of caution to seek another opinion. These two on the Tennis courts always outshine the one in Rex Hazlewood.

This looks like Daydream. The blooms are right, the hips are right, the very prickly stems are right, the growth habit is right and the foliage is right - including its susceptibility to black spot.
The blooms are exquisite and the hips are quite dramatic - it makes a large crop of hips if the spent blooms aren't trimmed.

Thanks billy teabag,
It will now have the correct plaque made for it.

On your listing for the Senate Tennis Courts, you have the class listed as Climbing Hybrid Tea, Hybrid Gigantea.
Are you happy with that for your set-in-stone plaque?
