Fryer's Roses says Scent-sation has terrific fragrance with sumptuous high centered blooms of impeccable form in a refreshing and very appealing, almost seductive blend of warm, creamy gold and soft peach pink. The flowers are large, beautifully formed and carried in profusion, both singly and several together in clusters, on a neat bushy growing plant of hearty vigour and lavishly clothed with handsome dark green foliage - displaying a high resistance to disease. One of the most fragrant HT's for many years!
