Black spot can be a problem for this rose. I am in New Mexico where black spot is not typically a big deal. Otherwise it is a fine rosebush, continually blooming. This is the first year it has been a big problem. Nearby roses — Fragrant Plum, Paradise and Love Song had very little black spot. It's been in for 5 or 6 years. This is the first year that a single rose bush had so much black spot, so we will see how it does next year.

An excellent garden rose, Barbra Streisand is a total blooming fool, covering itself with scores of blooms with fast repeat. It produces many basal breaks and blooms in huge panicles, I have nicknamed her ‘Barbra Candlelabra’. It blooms well in all weather, and is still generous during my hot and humid summers. The foliage is especially glossy and beautiful. It is not my favorite color...definitely on the pink side of mauve, it might be called orchid pink or even a dusty rose. The color is somewhere between First Prize and Angel Face, and just barely earns a mauve classification. Still , for its easy care, prodigious bloom and strong old rose fragrance, this rose well earns its place in the garden.

Babs is not as disease prone as I had initially read about. I sprayed her earlier than the others last year as a preventative measure and she never had black spot or mildew. Just don't let the fungus establish in the first place.

I wish I had seen HMF's comment earlier !! Put Barbra in a pot in full-sun at 90+ hot temp, and leaves got scorched in just a few days .. so I moved the pot to a few hours of morning sun, and it pumped out leaves & buds. It refused to bloom until I gave it lots of SOLUBLE fertilizer, and leaves got glossier with alkaline pea- gravel. Glossy foliage needs alkaline minerals & constant moisture & partial shade.
