Mini rose opinions

skfrey25(6a)February 12, 2013

I am trying to select one mini rose plant! I am particularly interested in Carnival Glass, Emma Grace, Busy Bee, and Freckle Face. Rainbow's End is appealing as well. I would really appreciate any opinions on these roses, or suggestions for other minis!

I don't have the others but Rainbows End has been a bloom machine for me.

I can't say enough good things about Bees's always in's bushy and always healthy..the blooms always change to a different variegation of yellow w pink. I'm going to put purple Diamond Eyes min. next to it as those are the color combos that I like....I would never be without Bees Knees.

Emma Grace is a beautiful mini. Rainbow's End is also fantastic. Glowing Amber is a stunning mini. Heirloom Rose Nursery has a great selection of mini's. Hortico Roses also carries some nice mini's. You need to be careful. Growing a few mini's can lead to growing a LOT of mini's. I know. The first year I started growing mini's I had 8. Three yrs later I had 60+. The more I saw, the more I wanted.

I think she wanted to know about Busy Bee not Bee's Knees. The only one of those I've grown is Rainbow's End and it was one of my favorites. After a decade or more in a pot it finally bloomed itself to death one year and I haven't gotten around to replacing it yet, but it's still one of my favorite minis....Maryl
