Rosa 'Hot Tamale'



Hot Tamale Miniature Rose

Hot Tamale Miniature Rose is one of our few miniatures not bred by Ralph Moore. Bred by Dr. Keith Zary and introduced in 1993, we had to include this miniature rose in our selection because it is just so amazing. Hot Tamale bushes can get two feet high or more and are just as wide. Covered in blooms that are a varying shades of yellows and pinks, Hot Tamale is a must have in every garden.

Hot Tamale produces quarter size rose hips that turn shades of green, gold and orange in early fall which can 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.

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.

Hot Tamale 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.
