Wonderful rose! The scientific name would be Rosa sp., since we do not really now which species it actually is. There are thousands of different breeds of roses. It looks like the Memphis Music Rose, so a valuable common name might be "Cultured Rose cf. Memphis Music Rose". The abbreviation cf. means "not yet or to be confirmed".

WOW!! Beautiful do not specially like roses, only a few and this one it is definitely one I like.

There is a rose called Memphis Music that has the dark red stripes with yellow highlights. Here is a PDF file from the American Rose Society all about striped roses.

Remarkable rose, is it an accidental mutation of one flower, or are all the roses on the bush like this one?

I bet lots of gardeners here in the US would love that! If you start cuttings from the plant they will grow exact clones of this rose others can enjoy!
