What is This Rose?

Resurrected from 2013…

This is a small rose in our garden, and I do mean small. So what is this rose? It survived the winter in a large pot. It might get a bit bigger than this, but not much. Cute little thing, isn’t it?

It might hit 9″ under the right conditions. This one’s a bit … short of that.

Cute little flowers, interesting texture. Note the aphid on the right flower.

  1. Hi!
    Glad that I found your website. I have been tending the roses at Immaculate Heart Retreat Center here on the South Hill up on Ben Burr Road near Tower Mountain for the past 18 years. This year, the foliage on the approx 75 roses is spectacular, but I noticed with horror that about 10 of the roses have a very advanced case of black spot! We have had very little in previous years. I do use a Bayer 3 in 1 fertilizer, pesticide, fungicide usually 3 x over the summer months until August……but this new infestation looks really bad, and I am very worried that it may kill a dozen plants if I don’t do something more drastic than the normal treatment. Already, several of the plants have dropped most of their lleaves and look like skeleton plants. What would you suggest? I need to get on this ASAP. At first I thought it was only on three (Fragrant Plum, Olympiad, Veterans’ Honor….but it is also on Gentle Giant, Joseph;s Coat, Angel Face, and one Peace rose. ANY HELP YOU CAN GIVE ME WOULD BE APPRECIATED!!!! Thank you

  2. I am a rose gardener currently living in another
    State but I am moving to Spokane in another couple of months. 2 questions please …. can I bring some of my potted roses with me? And, are there some roses that grow particularly well in the Spokane climate? I have the standards – Iceberg roses, Joseph’s Coat and Double Delight. But, I also have some harder to find ones like Lady of the Dawn, Showbiz and Grues en Nachten (sp??) a German Victorian rose. It will hurt to part with these but I will give them away to friends if I can’t or shouldn’t take a few with me for the move. Thank you for your advice.

    1. Hi,
      Sorry to take soooo long to reply.

      You can look up all of your roses here: https://www.helpmefind.com/rose/plants.php

      Anything that is rated zone 4 or lower should do fine.
      Some zone 5s will be ok, and zone 6+ will need winter protection. It gets chilly here.

      Joseph’s Coat looks like a 4b, so should be fine.
      Double Delight is a 7, so will need winter protection.
      Lady of the Dawn and Showbiz are a 6, so also protect.
      Couldn’t find Grues en Nachten.

      Anything in a pot is a little more fragile than otherwise.
