Cinderella Miniature Rose is
ideally suited for hedging. It easily reaches three feet or more but takes
well to shearing into shapes. It is also thornless which makes it nice in
the mixed perennial garden or in a garden where children are present.
Like all roses, miniature roses are sun loving and fairly
drought resistant. Plant in well drained soil and fertilize with an organic fertilizer
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.
Cinderella Miniature Rose would make a great addition to our
Kid's Herb Garden.
