Barbara Striesand (JRG012) ~ May 12, 2001
In 1997 Barbara Striesand asked hybridizer/horticulturist Tom Carruth of
Weeks Wholesale Rose Grower, Inc. in California to develop a rose for her.
Being an avid rose breeder herself it took some time before Tom was
able to come up with a rose that met the songster's particular requirements.
Only after test growing several candidates in her own rose garden did she
choose this very fragrant lavender or mauve hybrid tea rose to carry her name.
