Comments The first of Mc Gredy's "painted roses," it may be important principally for the role it played in producing the iconic "Eye Paint" the unusual "Betty Boop," the bright "Stretch Johnson" or the cheery "Oranges 'n' Lemons." In any case, it is vigorous and very nicely branched. And it's healthy. Those searching for a scented repeating rose in these colors will probably choose Scentimental.
