    I wanted to put my input, though I will need your eyes to do so. If the pink flower is on a separate stem from the second 2 photos, I think this would need to be cut back to the ground to keep the entire rose from reverting back to its original stock growth (or sucker growth). Those flowers are weaker, smaller, and not as fragrant. Now if the pictures are all from that one flower . . . ok, then you have me stumped!! Gorgeous. But do check to see if the pink one is on a separate branch. Enjoy!!

    Thank you both for finding out the name of my new rose. Any idea about the name of the pink one?

    The pink rose is on a separate bush in a plantar on the opposite side of the trellis. They will both be trained to grow over the arch.

If it turns out to be a bush rose and not a climber, then it's probably Double Delight...it looks a lot more like the latter to me.
    As a new rose grower, the first thing you should do is get on a rose forum..there are many good ones and you can learn a lot from them.
    The second(and too late) bit of advice is that roses in the plastic bags at the box stores (we call them "body bags" for good reason LOL) are notorious for being mismarked and diseased...better to go with a reputable company and get a good rose to start with. I only mention this because you didn't say where you got them, and if indeed you did purchase a body bag, chances are good that it will not make it through it's first winter, or if it does, it will die of rose virus in the next year or so...and you will be looking for replacements.
    i bought them them at a local garden store with a gallon bucket of soil. Guaranteed to grow, or free replacement.

    I have ones like this. Its amazing to see different color flowers from the same bush. Right now mine are light pink but they will also get the darker pink and the yellow and pink ones. I love them all, no matter what color they come out. It could depend on the soil too. Hydrangous and azalea bushes vary in color depending on the alkaline in the soil. You can use additives and it'll change the color being produced. When I first bought my house the azalea's bushes were close to my house which the base was cinder blocks, then I moved them away from the house and they were a different color.
