Are you "Quietness?" by Leenechan
Are you "Quietness?", a photo by Leenechan on Flickr.

I hope so! The flower shape and habit looks right, but this first time bloom is purple, not pink! It could be the weather...

It's rather pretty just the same. But damn, I was really looking forward to a sugary pink rose...

I'm going to go out on a limb and say maybe mislabeled.

Mine has NEVER thrown even 1 flower that shade...and the leaf shape isn't quite right?

Closest I could find.

Pretty rose, regardless!

I agree. I'm really starting to think that it's "Silver Shadows." That would explain why it suffered so much cane dieback during the winter in spite of my winter protection ("Silver Shadows" is only cold-hardy to Zone 6) and why it's been a slow grower and stingy with blooms ("Silver Shadows" is a hybrid tea rose). And of course, it looks very much like the "Silver Shadows" I have growing in a pot. XD

I've contacted Northland Rosarium about the possible error, but I'm not sure about their policy. I hoping that they don't ask me to send back the plant.
