Why Not Rose in bloom

Why Not Miniature Rose was introduced by Ralph Moore in 1984. Why Not makes one of the most impressive displays when it blooms in the spring. The bushes are covered with single 1 to 1 1/2 inch roses with outer edges that are a vivid reddish orange with a striking yellow center. It is one of our favorite roses.

Why Not makes miniature rose hips after blooming. Rose hips are high in Vitamin C and make a tart tangy tea.

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.
