Great article! I don't think people will look at the mini rose that same way now. They will be flocking to the stores to snatch all the little beauties up today!

Save a tiny rose, people! This is a wonderful article :0) Mini roses are indeed very hardy and rewarding to grow. The perfect little blooms are captivating. Give it a try as Lee Anne suggests and you won't be sorry. especially liked the photos ;0)

thanks Lee Anne

Is it true minis have no fragrance? Around here, if they don't sell, they just send them back - kind of like returning a dress after the prom!

Lovely article! I bought one in December to brighten my home for the winter. It is surviving & putting out new leaves all the time but I have to keep pinching them off because they get this white powdery stuff on them. I guess I should head over to one of the forums for somr Rx info. I was hooping by putting it in my entryway garden come spring it would get happier.

Pixie - I was told minis never smelled! Do you have a cultivar name on yours?

Thanks,

No name on it Carrie, it's a WalMart special. LOL I went in to pick up some cat & dog food and saw them in the gardening area.

I wince whenever I see these little guys all dried out and dying... I want to take them all home! Been wanting to grab a few minis whenever I wander by the little gardening place by my apartment. I wonder how well they'd do in zone 9? I'm in southern California and it get's DRY in high summer... Maybe not full sun, but possibly put them in scattered sun/light shade? Definitely keep them watered.. Hmm... Dangit, my husband's gonna be so annoyed when the roses start showing up. *chuckles* He's always bugging me about my growing plant collection. He just can't understand my affection for the spiky things. Cacti- YAY!
