‘Playboy’ x ‘Peppermint Twist’

Hybridizer – Carruth, 1997


This spicy scented floribunda was the first striped rose to win the AARS award. With burgundy and creamy white stripes on a vigorous plant with shiny, dark green foliage, Scentimental hardly needs its wonderful fragrance to attract attention, but that’s what made it an award winner in 1997. If you like the old fashioned type roses with its cup-shaped bloom, Scentimental is for you. The coloration is unique. It is disease resistant, hardy and has a strong fragrance. Bloom size is 4”-6” and is generous with its blooms. I had two in front of my old house and I planted two at my new home also.


Until next time, stop and smell the roses.
