Rosa 'Baby Austin'

BABY AUSTIN MICRO- MINIATURE ROSE

 
 

Baby Austin Miniature Rose

 

Baby Austin is a sometimes referred to as a micro-mini rose because its pale pink petals and leaves are tiny. Each bud is the size of a dime that opens to a nickel size rose. The plant grows to about a foot and half tall. It is a prolific bloomer and quite a show stopper. Because of its diminutive size, it makes a good choice for container growing. Start by placing our three inch pot into a container that will hold about a gallon of potting soil. Potting soil should have a coarse texture and have organic granular fertilizer mixed in before planting. Check the container each year to make sure the rose is not root bound. If it has filled up the container with roots, transplant to a gallon size larger container.

Like all roses, miniature roses are sun loving and fairly drought resistant. Plant in well drained soil and fertilize with an organic fertilizer in the 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.
