mini roses

Just getting into supplying my back yard with roses of all types. Is there any suggestions on which miniature ones that I can get to place in the front area of my gardens.

I love the white, pink & yellow colors.

Anyone here that can recommend anyone of these colors, that I can be looking for is greatly appreciated.
Thanks & happy gardening.

Check out Richard Anthony's site,

The best white out there (IMHO) is Whirlaway.

If you want kind of a sprawler mini, try the white Green Ice--excellent mini.

Softee is an excellent mini that blooms nearly continuously, winters well, and is fairly disease free for me.

RE: mini roses

I have started with minis, last spring actually, and I just love the two I got:

Gourmet popcorn looks like, well....popcorn and blooms a lot.

Rainbow's End is so pretty and cheerful. Good bloomer too.

Some of the smaller polyanthas might also work. White Pet is very nice, and can be kept in a compact shape.

Great !! I will have to keep notes on these mentioned and give them a try...
Many thanks to all for your suggestions.
I look forward to having these in my garden beds.
