Neptune balled badly in this unusually cool, wet spring: petals stuck together and the bud rotting before the bloom had a chance to open. My only rose of about 15 varieties that is doing that.

Does anyone grow both 'Barbra Streisand' and 'Neptune'? I wish to know how their fragrance compare. I heard that BS has a strong old rose fragrance, does Neptune approach it in terms of fragrance? or Should I just get both?

Barbara is likely to be more fragrant than Neptune. I grew Neptune this year (new plant) and yes it has fragrance but I would not describe my Neptune as very fragrant. Maybe that will change with time as the bush matures.

never smelled Barba but my Neptune is easily the strongest smelling rose in my garden, right next to scentimental. You can easily smell it form across the yard! Both Neptune and Scentimental are favorites of mine, their scents are to me pretty similar, but Neptune has a distinctive difference... im not so good with describing scents! but either way Neptune is a 10/10 all around rose for me!

A 10 foot tall giant here in my Eastern North Carolina garden.

It will blackspot a bit - and has some scent. Flowers produced atop tall canes.

Fertile as both a seed and pollen parent.

Neptune doesn't turn magenta or pink in our heat but hasn't been vigorous here at all. I took them out of the pot to see if they would take off but they still just produce a flower now and then on tiny little plants. The fragrance was so nice that I'm considering whether or not to find one from a different source or just accept that they're not that happy here. Own-root, sandy soil, no-spray, southern Z8..
