What: Rose “Scentimental” is a floribunda known for its spicy fragrance and its unique swirling red and white colors. Petals are splashed with varying red and white variations ranging from mere color splashes to eye catching swirls on blooms that grow 4 to 6 inches. This rose is extremely disease resistant, an important factor in our damp climate. In 1997, the American Rose Society conferred its “All American Rose Selection Award” on this shrub.

Sun or shade: Like most roses, it performs best in full sun.

Size: Matures at 4 feet in height

See it: At the WSU Snohomish County Master Gardener Demonstration Garden, Jennings Memorial Park, 6915 Armar Road, Marysville.
