Jean Kenneally is our most fragrant miniature rose. Most miniatures
are not fragrant which makes Jean Kenneally with its old rose
fragrance a must have in your garden.
Jean Kenneally, like many roses starts out one color and ages to
a lighter version of that color. The soft shade of peach of the
perfectly formed buds eventually become a beautiful cream blush.
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.
Jean Kenneally Miniature Rose is 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 Six Pack
or our Edible Flower Herb Garden
