Name That Rose!

Thanks to the Rose Database, I am fairly sure this isn’t William Shakespeare (although it comes very close). This plant has medium-large fully-double, damask-scented blooms in eye-popping dark pink on a small plant with foliage not much larger than a Susan B. coin. I’d say the blooms are big for the plant, which I am estimating will get to be about 3 x 3 this year. (It was in a terrible location last year, and never budded, let alone bloomed–I almost threw it out, but when I moved Double Delight, I had room for this fellow, and decided to give it a month in a sunnier spot with more room for its feet. Four weeks later, it’s covered with buds.)

    Perhaps a picture of the bush itself, and another closeup of the buds?
