Sequoia Ruby Miniature Rose is a beautiful and
dependable rose with glossy green leaves and hundreds of fuchsia colored
blooms. It also produces tip-of-the thumb size rose hips which are large for
a miniature rose. Rose hips are high in Vitamin C and make a tasty
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.
The abundance of good size rose blooms makes this rose
perfect to add to our Edible Flower
Herb Garden Six Pack.
