OGR-like flowers?

I bought one with pink quartered OGR-like flowers but they were only about 2.5" IIRC. The plants were less than 4" tall! Would love to know of similar varieties readily available online please. Thanks, Dar.

Pretty little rose but it won't stay 4 inches tall! Depending on the variety it could get anywhere from 3 to 12 feet tall, lol!

At 2 and 1/2 inches in bloom size I'd say it's probably not a miniature rose but if you like smaller blooms miniatures and minifloras may be what you're looking for. There are several nurseries on line that carry both of those classes. Try Heirloom Roses because I know they are handling a number of minis right now. Others are Rogue Valley, Rosemania, Roses Unlimited, Northland Rosarium and Burlington Rosesbut there are more.

RE: OGR-like flowers?

Thanks for the info Seil. I saw your pic of Cinderella on HMF and had to get it because it was so compact. I prefer compact plants because I don't have much space. Also got Norwich Sweetheart and Sweet Arlene from Burlington.

Though I'm still wondering if there are any roses with 3 inch flowers that can be containerized and bloom often?

RE: OGR-like flowers?

Don't know about Norwich Sweetheart but Sweet Arlene will get pretty big. The blooms on SA are very beautiful and unique. Very rare and hard to find rose. Find a special place for this beauty :)
