I really enjoy this rose because of its nice strong scent and because it is a prolific bloomer and is very vigorous normally! However!!!! Aromatherapy cannot tolerate tons of rains and will be one of the first of my hybrid teas to go completely naked the fastest!

I purchased Aromatherapy from Jackson Perkins as a potted rose last September. It was very small an non descript. In the last past month Aromatherapy has really taken off It is already 3' high and has given a few blooms. The blooms are just a beautiful and J&P says, they look exactly like the photo shown on the website. Very scented, i could'nt stop smelling it. The blooms are high centered double and approx. 4-5'' in width.

This is one of the most scented perfect pink roses i have ever seen. No trouble with b.s. or mildew here in zone 6.
Aromatherapy came through the winter with just mulch as protection and it was a very young plant but survived, very vigorous.
