Miniature roses first became popular during the 1800s, then were almost forgotten. Lately, their popularity has been growing rapidly. They are now among the most commonly hybridized of all roses. Miniature roses are represented by twiggy, repeat-flowering shrubs ranging from 6" to 36" in height, with most falling in the 12"–24" height range, climbing varieties can reach up to 5’ tall, still bearing tiny flowers. Blooms come in all the hybrid tea colors; many varieties also emulate the classic high centred hybrid tea flower shape, although they can be found as single, semi-double, double or in clustered form. Miniature roses are great in containers, make lovely borders, or for those with a small yard or balcony.
