I was wondering if anyone could suggest a good place to buy a singular good quality miniature rose? (:
I'm a little tired of dealing with separating and wondering if they'll be ok haha so I was wondering if any place was reliable and sold good quality miniature roses or any recommendations!
I'm in the U.S. if that helps (:

Thanks so much!
Have a nice day!

You should check out Burlington Rose Nursery (559) 747-3624. Don't bother looking at her website, which is not functioning (at least not the last time I checked). She will email you a list with tons of miniature roses. Burling (That's her name) is very personable; her prices are very reasonable. Others on this forum have purchased roses from her and regard her highly. If I recall correctly, you can also email her to get the list.

Another good mini seller is K & M roses. You can order them either own root or grafted on Fortuniana. Fort. pushes them to grow strong, quick and big but it is only good for warm climates like yours.

Daniel, the nice thing about Burling is she is just down the "road" from you on the 99. Her roses will do well in your area. Also, she grows a lot of the roses from Ralph Moore who was the "king" of the miniature rose. He bred them for health first and then beauty. So, they will do very well in your yard or in a large pot. Ralph's nursery was also down the road from you on the 99.

I too am just down the road from you on the 99. I have several mini's that do well in my yard and in large pots. Peppermint Parfait is a good one and one of my favorites. Minnie Mouse aka Roller Coaster is another. Sequoia Gold is also great. I just picked up Peachy Bear (which Burling bred). It should do well in my yard. It will replace my Lady of Shallot which is a stingy bloomer that wants to be a climber. Peachy Bear doesn't get to be that big if you are looking for a smaller rose bush. I also just won, through a silent annual on-line rose auction, another Ralph Moore rose, Star Dust which was part of his Crown Jewels series.

I also have Vineyard Song, Halo Sweetie and am starting on the (not minis but smaller roses) Seven Dwarf series of roses. I have Doc and Sneezy. Lavender Crystal gets a bit of blackspot in very early spring (if we have a wet spring) but is a nice mini rose.

When you get the roses from Burling, if you order any from her, don't be surprised at the size of them. She will send you "bands" which are cuttings that she has rooted. You will need to pot them up progressively for about a year or so before you put them in their permanent location (if you are planting them in your yard). Otherwise, you can leave them in a pot. Usually, any plants I get from Burling, in November, are pretty much ready to go into the ground by late May or early June before the super hot weather truly hits and is here to stay for six months.

Thank you for the advice, it was extremely helpful and pushed me to make a decision. (:

I decided to purchase a "Black Jade" miniature from Burling and am awaiting a response and hopefully I'll get a second rose from her. I'm hoping to purchase "Saint Mary"/"Cafe Ole" but we'll see if it's available.
I would purchase a lot more but I have limited money haha

Vineyard song and Minnie Mouse/Rollercoaster are beautiful and I was considering purchasing Rollercoaster (:

Unfortunately, I live in an apartment with a patio so I can't ground plant them i'm probably going to keep buying pots haha

Well, in my experience you can't do better than Burling, but I did want to mention that High Country roses also carries quite a few miniatures.
