Strawberry Swirl Miniature Rose is one of the most
beautiful bicolor roses we have ever seen. Each rose flower is painted
irregularly with splatters of varying shades of pink. The pinks range in
color from salmon to fuchsia.
Strawberry Swirl and Twister
are the only two bicolor miniature roses that we carry that have a slightly sweet
fragrance. Jean Kenneally and
Renny also have a slight scent.
Like all roses, miniature roses are sun loving and fairly
drought resistant. Plant in well drained soil and fertilize with an
spring. We prune out dead canes whenever we notice them and shape the
plant to the height and width we want in fall. 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. Sample buds should be
pulled apart and inspected for insects before using on food.
