Is this a scentsational?
Hi all, I ordered a scentsational from twoSistersRoses awhile back, and received my rose in the mail shortly once they'd determined that the weather was ok.
It was healthy and all when I got it, and had a little garden tag stuck it that proclaimed it a scentsational. There were no buds on it at the time, so I just planted it and eagerly awaited my future lovely smelling flowers.
Now I finally have a blossom, but ....it's not what I expected at all. It's a pink color, for one thing, and it doesn't smell like much at all. If I stick my nose to it and take a good deep sniff, the fragrance I can get out of it is about the same as my grocery store bought parade roses. It did catch a pretty uh..enveloping case of what I think is powdery mildew, but I don't know if that would cause such a dramatic change in what the internet tells me scentsationals are supposed to be like.
There were a couple other blossoms starting to open this morning, and although I didn't get a picture I would swear they were somewhere between pink and very light peach-orange. It's a pretty color....but not what I expected.
Can the conditions a mini-rose is grown in change it so dramatically? I did email the sellers to ask, but I sent my first email with an attached picture last Saturday, and then a picture-less one later in case the first was deleted, but I still haven't heard back from them yet. Has anyone ever received a mislabeled rose from them?
