    This miniature rose won the ARS Award of Excellence in 2001. It has a nice apricot color that can be more pink-apricot in cooler weather, and the older flowers do fade to very light apricot. I think it really is at its best as a tree rose, as it seems to have more petals and lots of blooms. It seems quite disease resistant, at least for me in our drier climate.
