Rosa 'Mr. Bluebird'

MR. BLUEBIRD MINIATURE ROSE

 
 

Mr. Bluebird Miniature Rose

 

Mr. Bluebird Miniature Rose is a conversation starter. Planted separately or in a rose garden, the eye is drawn to the various shades of mauve and purple flowers that are displayed in clusters throughout the growing season.

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.

Mr. Bluebird produces tiny 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.

Mr. Bluebird Miniature Rose would make an excellent addition to our Edible Flower Herb Garden Six Pack.
