Hi,

So my grandpa's yard needs love & care which I've been working on for him. He has several roses, a lot of hybrid teas that are pretty old. Which have given me bouts of crying fits and temper tantrums. I give them everything I have, and still everyday seems a new problem 😒. Anyway he also has about four climbers? Shrubs? That mostly do very well, in fact one in particular is huge! There are a couple that I've been trying to rejuvenate. My question is what specific variety do they fall under? They all have have miniature double type blooms. All are varying shades of pink. One is very light pink, then another is more vibrant pink with apricot undertones and smells wonderful. They all have a shrub like shape but have long canes that droop if not supported. They look as though they were grafted but a few started growing on their own roots. Also the blooms grown in clusters. Any idea's? Polyantha? Shrubs? Climbers?

They could be just classified as miniature roses .... Smiling

Miniature roses are defined by the size of the bloom, not the growth habit. There are climbing miniature roses like 'Cl. Rainbow's End'

Rose (Rosa 'Rainbow's End, Cl.')



The bush type of miniature roses can be short bushes or large bushes

Rose (Rosa 'Green Ice')





or

Rose (Rosa 'Sequoia Gold')





or

Rose (Rosa 'Baby Austin')





Miniature roses can have all of the different bloom forms of the larger roses.
I'd rather weed than dust ... the weeds stay gone longer.

Hi Lyn,

Thank you for the clarification! You were so much more clear than information I read through via web search. Glad I know now.

Carly Hurray! Thank You!

Carly ..

You are welcome ... Smiling

You handle miniature roses exactly the same way as you do larger roses. The only difference is when you feed them, use half strength fertilizer. Everything else you know about roses applies.

Most miniature roses are own root plants. They can even be hacked down to the ground and come back. They are a LOT tougher than they look and are quite forgiving.

They are somewhat out of fashion now, but when Ralph Moore started breeding them there were only five miniature roses available to him to work with to start his breeding program. I don't know the number of roses that were developed from those original five roses, but it's into the hundreds for sure and possibly the thousands. They come in all sizes and shapes.

Enjoy your roses .... Smiling
