Miniature Roses for Mother's Day

Guest Author - Connie Krochmal

Give a gift that really matters this Mother’s Day-a miniature rose.

Often, cut flowers are given on this occasion. Yet, many women would much rather receive their very own mini rose bush.

Miniature rose bushes are the ideal plant for those with limited space. Every detail, from the small, perfectly shaped rose buds to the dainty foliage, is in proper proportion.

Many varieties of miniature roses are available. The largest ones are usually about two feet in height. As with other roses, you’ll find many kinds from tea roses to large-flowered minifloras.

Fragrance is missing in many miniature roses. If you prefer ones with scented blossoms, shop carefully. There is any number of varieties with fragrant flowers. Nor’ East Miniature Roses offers Seattle Scentsation. Slightly over two feet in height, this features wonderfully fragrant blossoms. Mauve in bud, these open to reveal blossoms with pink along

If you’re buying from local stores, check the plant tag to see whether the one you’ve selected is hardy for your area. Very few will be perfectly hardy in all hardiness zones.

Plants that are too tender to be planted outdoors can be grown indoors provided they receive enough light. Those grown as houseplants can become straggly if they’re grown in poorly lit situations.

If the miniature rose is to be planted outdoors, look for disease resistant ones like Caliente, also from Nor’ East Miniatures. This received an Award of Excellence from the American Rose Society. This new variety has disease-resistant foliage.

For Mother’s Day, miniature roses are often sold in decorative baskets of some sort. They’re also available in beautifully decorated pots as well.

If you want something a little fancier, consider a miniature tree rose. These look just like a shorter version of the standard tree rose.

The American Rose Society has extensive information on miniature roses at its website.

With their precious buds and exquisite blooms, miniature rose bushes are a gift that will be enjoyed long after Mother's Day is over.
