Light lavender in color with petals edged with pink and a cream reverse. The plant grows to about 30" and has healthy, medium green foliage. The flowers sometimes grow in clusters, but mostly they are borne singly, making Scentsational™ a wonderful, very fragrant, cut flower.
Justice Miniature Roses says this rose has light lavender petals that exude a heady fragrance; hence the name.
According to the 1997 American Rose Annual, p. 149, the correct registered name for this rose is 'SAVamor'.
