Jean Kenneally is our most fragrant miniature rose. Most miniatures are not fragrant which makes Jean Kenneally with its old rose fragrance a must have in your garden.
Jean Kenneally starts out one color and ages to a lighter version of that color. The soft shade of peach of the perfectly formed buds eventually become a beautiful cream blush. This rose produces rose hips at the base of the flowers. These can be used for crafts or 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. Dead canes can be pruned anytime but most pruning occurs in the fall when we shape the plant to the desirable height and width. 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. Before using any flower in food, a sample flower should be pulled apart and inspected for insects.
Jean Kenneally Miniature Rose is ideal for drying or using in fresh crafts like our fresh Herbal Wreath. It would make an excellent addition to our Crafter’s Herb Garden Six Pack or our Edible Flower Herb Garden Six Pack.
