Lovely pics. I bought my first 6 minis this Spring. Hope I can get them through the winter. I fell in love with them. They were never without flowers all summer, and still have buds after a couple killing frosts this week.

Thanks for sharing. They're beautiful

Question...where did you order them from and did they bloom their first year? I am in zone 5. I don't know if this matters.

Thanks and Take Care!

I got 4 of them from Tiny Petals years ago, they are now out of business. The rest I got from Nor'East. The Cinderella, Tiny tears, Baby Cheryl, Sugar Plum, Red Minimo, and No Worries are all new this year. They all are in full bloom, but small plants.

When you say that they are small plants are you saying that they haven't reached their potential height and width?

Is the bloom enough to carry a display? I'm thinking of doing ground covers with minis as the specimens

Thanks!

Some haven't reached their full potential. I ordered a bunch of roses that stay small to go in some pots I have. Hopefully they won't get taller than about 12 to 18 inches. The little artist, Teddy Bear, and xrated would be good display plants. The rest are small or have small flowers. The sugar plum is a cascading type.
