Magic Carrousel

dighappy(z7 NJ)February 26, 2005

When my sister had a baby in April of 2003 I bought a mini from the baby for her for mother's day. It was labeled Magic Carrousel and was absolutely beautiful. It bloomed all spring and summer and except for some blackspot was really a vigorous grower, got to about 2 feet tall. I am posting a pic of it, is this rose generally pretty hardy, I am hoping that we have another lovely spring and summer bloom season this year.

(thumbnail, click to see full photo) isn't cane hardy in our zone but is a vigorous grower in spring. This one only gets a few inches of lawn clippings for protection. It was planted in 2001.

My pleasure :) That was about a third of the blooms on the bush. MC is a bloom machine. Don't know why it isn't higher on my favorites list. I look at it in bloom and think it should be in the top 5.... MC just hasn't grabbed me like some others have. MC is one of Deb's favorite 5 minis.
