Scentimental

Floribunda - Burgundy-red swirled with creamy white

 

1997 AARS winner.  You might think stripes are a new-fangled thing. But it is the old rose heritage that brings the genetic stripping to this spicy scented new-comer. Each petal is as unique as a snowflake--some more burgundy-splashed-white, some creamed-swirled-red-all on the same vigorous plant. The old-fashioned form & fragrance may remind you of its stingy blooming ancestors. Yet the nearly continuous number of blossoms lets you know there's modern kinfolk in there, too. Distinctive clean quilted foliage.
