Rosa 'Wekplapep' SCENTIMENTAL

Common Name: floribunda rose
Plant Type: Deciduous shrub
Family: Rosaceae
Height: 3 to 4 feet
Spread: 3 to 4 feet
Bloom Time: May - To frost
Bloom Color: Red and white striped
Sun: Full sun

General Culture:

Grow in medium moisture, slightly acidic, well-drained garden loams in full sun. Tolerates some light shade, but best flowering and disease resistance generally occur in full sun. Water deeply and regularly (mornings are best). Avoid overhead watering. Good air circulation promotes vigorous and healthy growth and helps control foliar diseases. Summer mulch helps retain moisture, keeps roots cool and discourages weeds. Remove spent flowers to encourage rebloom. Crowns need winter protection in cold winter areas.

Noteworthy Characteristics:

'WEKplapep' SCENTIMENTAL is a bushy, upright floribunda rose which typically grows 3-4' tall. Features fully double, cup-shaped blooms (to 4" diameter) irregularly striped red and white. Flowers appear singly or in clusters from May to frost. Strong, spicy fragrance. New foliage emerges reddish but matures to glossy dark green with a somewhat quilted texture. 1997 AARS winner. Varietal denomination of this rose is 'WEKplapic', but plant is being marketed under the trade name of 'Scentimental'.

Photo taken in Maplewood Park Rose Garden. Cropped, sharpened and increased saturation.
