Because she has an interest in gardening and especially in roses, Streisand wanted to be involved with the selection that would bear her name. Rose hybridizer Tom Carruth of Weeks Roses sent her various seedlings which she grew and observed in her garden before deciding on this hybrid tea. 'Barbra Streisand' has large, lavender-mauve blooms with a strong, citrus-rose fragrance. It makes an excellent cut flower and shows good disease resistance, a quality Streisand also desired in her namesake rose. USDA Zones 5 to 9.
