Rosa 'Scentimental' is a showy variety of floribunda rose with small clusters of large, 4 in. across (10 cm), double, high-centered, burgundy-red flowers, adorned with creamy-white swirls and packed with up to 36 petals. No two flowers are alike, each bloom having its own distinct splashes of color. Opening from pointed buds, they enjoy a moderate, spicy fragrance and bloom in flushes from late spring into fall. Their brilliant colors contrast beautifully with the foliage of glossy, dark green leaves. Compact, bushy and rounded, this shrub is reported to be tolerant of heat, humidity.
