A Rose that Blooms in Winter

Even in the Valley of the Sun the rose bushes normally go dormant during the winter, so I was very surprised when one of the roses I planted this fall started blooming again this week.  Some of the flowers are a little ragged around the edges due to the cold nights when they were buds, but it's still a brave effort.  The hummingbirds in my neighborhood are very appreciative; I'll try to get a photo the next time one of them visits.

Sadly, I lost the label so I don't know the name of the variety.
