Not only is it cute but it is hardy in my zone which a lot of doubles are not. I was not sure because the ancestor was you angel you which is not hardy in my zone but cute as can be can be place in my raised wooden bed over winter with no protection and is vigorous, blooms every year though not always double and is very fertile.

CUTE AS CAN BE (Stamile,G) diploid D97-10D [Little Wildflower x (Bubbly x You Angel You)] 12 EMRe. nofr. sev. 100% double. 2. 3-way branching. 12 buds.
Here is a real, real tiny 2 flower on a 12 scape. This rose red double has been double 100% of the time for us. A cutie that continues the popcorn doubles into the reds. Beautiful and worthy. Easily fertile both ways
