Stunning miniReview by Natasha
Such a gorgeous little bush, flowers are abundant and formed absolutely beautifully! I have one on my deck in CO, and I have to say (perhaps due to the heat and the sun exposure) the roses are very, very light pink in the center and turn white towards the tip of the petals. Gorgeous non the less. (Posted on 6/8/2017)
Name for me by my Mom's (Dee Bennett)Review by Sue Curry (formerly Sue O'Brien of Tiny Petals Nursery)
Yes, this tiny, micromini rose was named for me by my mother, the great mini hybridizer Dee Bennett. Why this rose?

When my Mom had just about decided to destroy the only seedling plant of this little, pale pink, test rose I told her that I thought that it was 'cute' and 'would be great for mini rose arrangers' who need those teeny, little blooms for the very small arrangements.

Truthfully, I was horrified, when I discovered that this micromini had been named for me. At the time, I was a top exhibitor in our San Diego area; and I wanted my namesake rose to had show form. A year later, Mom introduced the mini Jean Kenneally which became America's highest rated rose and top show mini. For the longest time, I kept saying, "That could have been MY ROSE!"

Over the years, I came to like and even love the little, pink micro that my Mom chose to name for her 'big girl'. (Note: I have always been a queen-size girl, and a micromini rose did seem somewhat inappropriate for such an ample lady.)

I never won a trophy with Sweet Sue. It will never make a big plant to show off in the garden; but it can make a lovely border plant for your garden, or pretty display in a small planter or container. Just don't put it into a tea cup size pot or something too small. Sweet Sue will quickly grow to about 12 to 18 inches tall with enough root space in a very short time. (Posted on 3/28/2015)
