Sequoia Ruby Miniature Rose is a beautiful and
dependable rose with glossy green leaves and hundreds of fuchsia colored
blooms. It also produces tip-of-the thumb size hips which are large for
a miniature rose.
Like all roses, miniature roses are sun loving and fairly
drought resistant. Plant in well drained soil and fertilize with an
organic fertilizer in the
spring. We prune out dead canes whenever we notice them and shape the
plant to the height and width we want in fall. All rose petals are
edible if grown organically and make attractive garnishes for salads.
They can be added after cooking to almost any dish. Whole buds can be
used to decorate cakes or other confections. Sample buds should be
pulled apart and inspected for insects before using on food.
