It has an undistributed seedling of my creation as its seed parent and as its pollen parent the variety known as `MACgenev` (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 8,279).
Named after Barbra Streisand, born on 24 April 1942.
Blackspot sensitive, so keep it sprayed. Weeks' web site says Flower color & size do best in milder temps.
