Moon Over Miami, Maybe

I have always known this rose as 'Moon Over Miami' which is what it was labeled when I bought it. I have one in my Laguna garden and went out and bought two more to put in a prominent spot in my SJC garden because I am so fond of it. All three look like this picture, although when they first open they are much more pink. It is one of those roses that evolves into a different look as the bloom matures, each more beautiful than the last. It is not bothered by bugs or disease and has a tight, small stature that blends into the flower bed with other plants well. The only problem is I can't find a reference to it on the Internet. The only rose that comes up in a search for the name is a white hybrid tea. That is not this rose. I am confused!

According to the rose guy I live with it looks like one of the Romantica Roses. This is a series of roses and he doesn't know which one it is without seeing it in person. They are beautiful roses and very disease resistant.

I hope you do find a name for this lovely rose! With qualities like that, everyone will want one!
