MAGIC CARROUSEL MINIATURE ROSE

 
Magic Carrousel Miniature Rose

Picked when in bud or just after the bicolor petals have begun to unfold, Magic Carrousel Rose blossoms are perfect for donning a wreath or garnishing a cake.

 

 

Magic Carrousel Roses blooming in the field

Everything about this rose is magic. This spectacular row is about 10 feet long, 5 feet wide and 4 feet high. It was planted with 3 of our 3 inch pots and is about four years old. 

 

So many Magic Carrousel roses!

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.
