Miniature Rose

Miniature Rose
Rosa 'Puppy Love'
Synonyms: SAVapup

‘Puppy Love’ is a beautifully blended mini rose. The flowers go along with the mini part but the bush is quite large growing up to 4.5 feet tall and quite wide. This one was spotted out in California but it would certainly find a place in my garden if it were available. The lightly scented flowers have 23 petals and it blooms throughout the season. The flowers produce a nice tapestry of colors when aging on the bush. Ernest W. Schwartz (U,S.) bred this rose in 1978 from a parentage of Zorina × Seedling.

I hope everyone is getting ready for the big holiday week in the United States. It is a special time of year here.

This is quite a striking mini-bloom and it looks as though it changes colors as it ages, correct?
I wonder how it would thrive on the coast.
