As a comment about Rose (Rosa 'Pink Pet'), Calif_Sue wrote:

Noted by Antique Rose Emporium:
"This everblooming rose is one of the most popular with landscape designers in our area. Its double, lilac-pink flowers form clusters that can be seen at a distance, and the compact bush fills out nicely with a minimum of pruning and maintenance. It is not very particular about soil conditions, but prefers a sunny open space. Some rosarians have suggested that this is the old China rose, ‘Pink Pet’, but we feel that it shows traces of Wichuraiana or Multiflora heritage and fits more naturally in the Polyantha class. The study name comes from a neighboring town, Caldwell, Texas, where this rose was found. "

My Caldwell Pink seems smaller than other Chinas in my garden which is near the Texas Gulf Coast and normally produces roses that grow larger than their descriptions. It is later than average to start blooming in the spring but continues almost all summer, fall (her best blooms), and into the winter. I planted her because she was an Earth Kind rose and she is definitely tough to thrive my benign neglect. The blossoms are an unusual color of lavender-pink.
