My miniature rose is blooming just in time for Christmas and I wanted to share the beauty. The little rosebush has nine blooms, the most ever. The flowers are a peachy pink and smell wonderful.
During the summer the rose lives outdoors. It was becoming root bound so before I brought it in the house this fall I re-potted, pruned and fertilized it. The reward was rapid growth and lots of buds.
A couple weeks ago spider mites attacked. A thorough soaking with Safer soap got rid of the nasty little bugs. I’m hoping they won’t return.
This miniature rose is over a foot tall. I’ve had it about four years when it started as a tiny 3″ plant I found in the grocery store floral department. The variety is Kordana rose.
