Rosa 'Rainbow's End'

RAINBOW'S END MINIATURE ROSE

 
 

Rainbow's End Miniature Rose

With Rainbow's End Miniature Rose, it is like getting two roses in one plant. While some roses fade to lighter colors with age, Rainbow's End has aging flowers that are just as vibrant as new blooms. Rainbow's End was introduced in 1986 and bred by Harmon Saville. Mr. Saville worked selling Ralph Moore Roses on the east coast in the late 1960's. Later he went on to start his own miniature rose nursery in Massachusetts.

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.

Rainbow's End 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.

Rainbow's End 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.
