Rosa 'Black Jade'

BLACK JADE MINIATURE ROSE

 
 

Black Jade Miniature Rose

 

Black Jade Miniature Rose is a soft dark red with black overtones. Newer buds and blooms appear blacker than older roses. Black Jade blooms, like many roses, also appear "blacker" in cooler weather. Unfortunately, there is no true black or blue rose. Mr. Moore tried his entire career of over 50 years to create both of these.

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.

Black Jade produces rose hips at the end of the season which can also add interest to a wreath or arrangement. Rose hips are also high in Vitamin C and make a tasty tea, which makes this plant a great addition to our Tea Herb Garden Six Pack.

Black Jade Miniature Rose would make an excellent addition to our Crafter's Herb Garden Six Pack for Zones 8-11 or our Crafter's Herb Garden Six Pack for Zones 5-11 and to our Edible Flower Herb Garden Six Pack.
