Rise and Shine Miniature Rose was introduced by
Ralph Moore in 1977. One of the finest yellow miniature roses available,
it can grow to a height of three feet and can get equally as wide. It
has a mass of bright yellow flowers summer through fall here in
zone 8. Fall also provides a bounty of delicious tiny rose hips that are
perfect for making a cup of tea, which makes this rose 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.
Rise and Shine Miniature Rose has perfectly shaped buds
that are 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 Six Pack.
