‘Rainbow’s End’ Miniature Rose

‘Rainbow’s End’ Miniature Rose
Synonyms: SAValife

‘Rainbow’s End’ is one of my favorite miniature roses. Last year it was a bit of a tragedy when one of the three bushes didn't return after the winter. They have growing in the garden for about 10 years now and doing well in a scruffy area. While the advertised height is 18 inches mine have grown up to 30 inches tall, which is probably due to where they are planted. The shading on the flowers is amazing almost demanding that the viewer take a closer look. Often when finished blooming the flowers turn all red.

Here are a few facts about ‘Rainbow’s End’:
Color: Yellow blend
Petal Count: 35
Breeder and Introduction: F. Harmon Saville, Nor'East Min Roses, US, 1984
Fragrance: Slight to none
Parentage: Rise 'n' Shine × Watercolor

I would highly recommend this mini. It is a hardy, prolific bloomer that doesn’t have a lot of disease problems.
