Would the Real Alan Titchmarsh Reveal Yourself...

Oh ... now there's a thought ... Alan Titchmarsh in my garden .... Must stop there ... that's a private fantasy.

 
When we bought this rose it was in tight bud. The plant standing beside it in the garden centre labelled 'Alan Titchmarsh' had a couple of blooms that looked & smelt heavenly but they were beginning to fade & had no more potential flowers. Ours however was fit to burst & looked a better shape all round. Although labelled the same, it wasn't until it eventually flowered that we realised it was an imposter. It smells just as perfect, the shape is neat & beautifully rounded & this year it rewarded us with 51 blooms in it's first flush. An imposter it may be, but it's been forgiven.

Sounds like a rose Alan would approve of, anyway! Do you know what it is?
