I think probably both companies use regular staff instead of horticulturalists.

@JustJazzmom  Even is that is the case, the girl should not have been guessing and telling a customer the rose is one rose, then when confronted, says that it is another rose, especially a rose that the customer had just told her it wasn't.

 

I took pictures of Phillip presenting Pasionate Kisses, and many pictures of the roses, and I am going to email them to Cottage Farms.  I wish it would make the company research until they come up with the name, but I have no hopes of that happening.

@JustJazzmom  I received another email this morning from Cottage Farms before I had a chance to send the pictures pf the rose on screen, but will do that tomorrow, and sent a picture stating again that the roses I have are Passionate Kisses, which they are not.  The roses Philip presented are clearly pink, not peachy with yellow, and had a different shape than the picture that was sent today.

 

If you look at the pictures in my thread "Mystery Rose, Any Ideas," anyone can clearly see that they are two compl;etely different roses, and neither resemble the roses Philip presented.  I can see now that I will never know the name, but I will still send the pictures I mentioned just to see what the reply is.

Picture I was sent:  This rose has open single petals, while mine are quartered and full with no yellow or pink to them, just one solid deep color.  When mine fade, of course they become lighter, but still not pink.

@JustJazzmom  They are beautiful!  I especially like Tamora and  'Molineux' English Rose.  I bought Ebb Tide this year, but it hasn't bloomed yet. I am trying not to post roses that I posted last year, but sometimes they deserve to be posted again. Smiley Happy  I have some to post as soon as they are on the computer.  I can't wait for the new roses to bloom, hope I love them, and you yours.

Thank you @mousiegirl

 

Colors are as depicted too on my monitor. 'Tamora' is a smaller English rose getting about 3' X 3' so its on the border of my rose garden.

@JustJazzmom

 Those are simply lovely.   You must feel so happy every time you look at them.  You may consider changing your nic to ProudRoseMom! 

You know, I'm getting a faint rose scent way over here in California.  Am I psychic or are your roses just that amazing!!

They definitely are! My 'Blanc Double De Coubert', a white rugosa is noticeably fragrant as you walk by it.

I can't even imagine being surrounded by all this beauty.  Thank you for sharing.  I enjoyed each and every one of them.  I don't think I could ever choose a favorite. They are just lovely.
