Barbra Streisand (JRG004) ~ May 12, 2001
In 1997 Barbra Streisand asked hybridizer/horticulturist Tom Carruth of
Weeks Wholesale Rose Grower, Inc. in California to develop a rose for her.
The songster had particular criteria for a rose to meet before she would
allow it to carry her name. The resulting rose, a cross of R. Blue Nile
and New Zealand, exceeded all her requirements. Its perfumed scent is
intense and the highly distinctive deep lavender double blossoms open to
four or more inches across. Its very free flowering so you will have
plenty of flowers to cut and still have Barbra Streisand in your garden.
This shrub grows from 2 to 3 feet in width and from 3 to 4 feet in hight.
