Overnight Scentsation

Carol_WA(z8)July 16, 2005

I just ordered this rose because I love fragrant roses and it is advertised as the most fragrant ever. Is it? I hope I'm not disappointed. If you have this rose can you tell me about it. How big did yours get? Do you like it?

It was fragrant enough for NASA to take it into space aboard the Space Shuttle to do tests on whether or not fragrance could be produced in zero gravity.

Fragrant and gorgeous-Here in ID z6 it also grows very tall so once established you will need to prune to maintain the shape you desire. And a beautiful lavender color, which I am quite fond of. You will love her!!!

A rank grower in my garden and often had all three major diseases at the same time. Blooms 3" across hardly qualify it as a "Mini", and the plant easily exceeds 3 feet tall. The other "Scentsation" roses are better than this one, particularly the original 'Scentsational'. YMMV.

I grew this rose many years ago and thought both the bloom and the fragrance outstanding. To me, it was more fragrant than the other "scentsation" varieties simply it was a bit bigger and had more petals.
