Notes:
Nor'East Miniatures says Overnight Scentsation™ is the most fragrant mini rose ever with large flowers of bright medium pink, laden with a strong rose scent. This is the first rose in space via John Glenn & Co. in 1998. One of the reasons it was sent along on the trip is its extraordinarily strong fragrance. A perfume is made from the fragrant oils of this rose.

It has large flowers of bright, medium pink and each many-petaled bloom is laden with a strong rose scent. The flowers measure 2 1/2 to 3 inches across, so it'll be a big hit in your neighborhood. This plant is an upright grower and has soft, matte green foliage.
