Herbie

Flawless exhibition style urn shaped blooms of rich, deep mauve with a rosy blush. The 1 3/4" blooms are double (petals 25-30) that come one to a stem and are great for cutting. Semi glossy mid-green foliage on an upright bushy plant.

We are no longer growing Herbie but will maintain this listing for reference purposes.

Beautiful Mini RoseReview by Seagull - Zone 10

I don't know why my Herbie is not pink like the photos shown above. It's mauve purple. I am surprised and like it. I have 7 miniature roses; Herbie and Incognito are my favorite. (Posted on 1/19/2018)
Great mini roseReview by CarolM

This is a wonderful mini-rose that I got from the hybridizer's daughter when she ran the rose nursery her mother started. So very glad to see this Bennett minI -rose is still available. This is a wonderful disease resistant rose that does well in some shade. Does Heirloom Roses sell any other Dee Bennett minis? I also love Yantai! (Posted on 4/25/2017)
The most disease resistant rose everReview by Sue Curry (formerly Sue O'Brien of Tiny Petals Nursery)

You can't give this rose fungus. I know, because there was a team of rosarians who tried to infect it as part of a test. This rose beat all the other roses in the test for disease resistance. It could not be infected. How's is that for a healthy? :)

Then, you must realize that the knee high plant is also generous, making loads of gorgeous, deep lavender blooms. Surprisingly, Herbie doesn't have a lot of fragrance; but it does have long, cutting stems and perfect show form.

This is one of my all time favorite roses, and I have grown more 2,000 varieties of rose. (Posted on 3/28/2015)
