Jackson & Perkins site says it has a strong pear fragrance. Your post says none to mild. I'd like to hear from growers for their comment on the aroma.

In this case, the information on the rose page came from the registration material submitted by J & P to the ARS.

I have this rose and love it. Mine has a strong fruity fragrance.

Mine just started blooming and I would categorize the fragrance as a medium, delicious fruity scent. This is a gorgeous rose, starting out a deep orange and fading to salmon pink. The stems are strong enough to hold the large blooms upright. In our garden showing incredible disease resistance!

Our Sedona has a wonderfully rich fruity fragrance. It is also one of the most beautiful flowers of all the plants in our rose collection. Healthy, vigorous, and generous with huge, long lasting blooms. We're going to get another next spring. Wonderful!

Sedona is one of my favorite roses in the garden. We live in inland bay area, Ca. z9b. The blooms have a strong scent. The first flush didn't have much fragrance, but every flush since that spring one, has been strong. The flushes are frequent. The character of the fragrance isn't sharp, but, rather, deep, rosy-pear-like, yummy. The flowers are very beautiful, deeper orange on the outer petals, somewhat apricot toward center early in the bloom, deepening as the flower ages to an even reddish orange, not brash at all. It blends well in our flower bed near Bronze Star, Rouge Royale, Day Breaker, William Shakespeare, even Scepter d'isle. There is a somewhat ruffly form to the blooms, the largest of the flowers are about 4.5 inches, lots of petals. The blooms seem to glow. They hold their shape well.

The bush is about 4x2, bought last spring from local nursery It has strong long stems, flowers 1 to a stem. The disease reisistant is good with an intermittant spray regime. There was a very small amount of rust early on, but after removing those few leaves, it never returned. No other disease noted. New leaves are reddish, which look attractive next to the orangy blooms.
