Windy City Miniature Rose was introduced by
Ralph Moore in 1974. Windy City is one of our tallest miniature
roses easily reaching three feet or more. It is a prolific bloomer
throughout the growing season.
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.
Windy City Miniature Rose has perfectly shaped buds
that are ideal for drying or using in fresh crafts like
our fresh Herbal Wreath. It
would make an excellent addition to our
Crafter's Herb Garden
