my mini rose

duajones(z9 TX)March 9, 2006

I sort of inherited a mini last year. I was told it was 7-8 yrs old and it was growing in one of those little swan type planters. It was in real bad shape. I transplanted last spring to a larger container with better soil and it looked pretty good for most of the year despite a couple of fungus problems. Anyway, I pruned it a few weeks ago and it looks really good. What are the chances of someone telling me what variety it is if I post some good pics of it? of course i would have to wait until it blooms.

Have at it. It depends on where it was purchased. Many of the minis bought from supermarkets or Lowes/Home Depot are from Kordes or Poulsen, they have good pictures on their web sites. Other mini vendors (Nor'East, Bridges, John's Miniature Roses, Almost Heaven) have good pictures on their web sites too if you want to check them out.
