Rosa 'Beauty Secret'

BEAUTY SECRET MINIATURE ROSE

 
 

Beauty Secret Miniature Rose

Beauty Secret Rose is covered in petite vibrant red flowers and blooms off and on throughout the growing season.  One of famed rose breeder, Ralph Moore's roses (introduced in 1965), Beauty Secret is still around because it is a prolific bloomer that is a true asset to any garden. It can reach three feet in height and about two feet in width over time. Beauty Secret is one of the first roses to pop out with its flowers.

In the early spring picture below, it is backed by the twiggy, still dormant, Lemon Verbena. This plant is about ten years old and about three feet tall and wide. It is roughly shaped into a ball once a year with a hedge trimmer. Beauty Secret is our densest rose bushy and makes a good four feet screen.

Beauty Secret is as close as it comes to a year round rose here in Zone 8. It is already in full leaf and starting to bloom when the rest of the roses are just starting to put out leaf buds.

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. Dead canes can be pruned anytime but most pruning occurs in the fall when we shape the plant to the desirable height and width.  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. Before using any flower in food, a sample flower should be pulled apart and inspected for insects.

 Occasionally this plant is available in plug trays. These trays hold 128 of all the same plant.  They are a great low cost way to fill a lot of space. Each cell is 3/4 of inch by an inch. Check here to see if Beauty Secret Miniature Rose Plug Trays are available.
