Outstanding Little Rose Must HAVEReview by Maryann
This rose...what can one say? I cannot say enough good things about this rose. The bloom is about the size of a quarter. It is a prolific little bloomer and the blooms last for days...I mean like over a week or more. It is charming although a bit of a slow grower. If you like unique and colorful, this little one is the perfect one for you. I am so glad that I purchased this during a sale. It is definitely worth the purchase price and does well in Southern California. (Posted on 7/6/2017)
