Judy Fischer is one of our oldest miniature roses and one of our favorites. It has proven to be a tough shrub that has taken drought, sheering by deer and lots of sun. It is a beautiful true pink that blends well with almost all colors.
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.
Judy Fischer Miniature Rose has perfectly shaped buds that are ideal for drying or using in fresh crafts like our fresh Herbal Wreath. Judy Fischer is one of the six plants chosen to be in our Crafter’s Herb Garden for Zones 5-11.
