Gardeners' Notes:

A very nice decorative cherry red mini that's always in bloom. Low growing and compact it's a good container rose. It is very winter hardy having endured many zone 7 winters outside in it's container positioned against a warm west exterior wall. Does need to be sprayed for blackspot in my climate, but if sprayed will stay clean. It's a definite winner. More people ought to try it.

A nice, bright red mini with very double flowers that are quick to repeat. Blooms fade a bit in bright sun. I've had no real disease problems, and the plant's proven hardy both in the garden and in a pot (overwintered in an unheated garage).
