Jean Kenneally is our most fragrant miniature rose. Most miniatures
are not fragrant which makes Jean Kenneally with its mild old rose
fragrance a must have in your garden.
Jean Kenneally 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.
produces rose hips at the end of the season 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.
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 for Zones 8-11 or our
Crafter's Herb Garden Six Pack for
Zones 5-11 and to our Edible Flower Herb Garden
