Comments When they look too blotchy or bold or when they are too subtle, stripes can detract from a rose's beauty; but occasionally they can add a lot of interest. In the case of Scentimental, stripes cause the flowers to look festive but not ridiculous. One might not use them in a garden designed to be restful, but they can add a huge amount of interest to a bed overburdened with pink flowers. In a spot that seeks novelty and fun, they are just the thing. Except for blackspot it has good disease resistance. It also produces hips.
