Created in USA by Tom Carruth before 1996 and diffused in America since 1997, ‘Scentimental’ is a successful Floribunda, known also as ‘Scentimental Sunflor’.

Vigourous shrub, with bright medium green foliage, that may surpass the metre of height and breadth.

Flowers usually in small clusters, with even 12 cm of diametre and 25-36 petals to say the least transgressive, fuchsia red with white-pinkish cream streaks, intrusive, sometimes predominant. They have an intense spiced raspberry fragrance with notes of the old Damask rose.

Showy spots of colour in the garden during all the vegetative period and an unusual ornament for the house as cut flower.
