Ring of Fire was introduced by Ralph Moore in 1986. It is a fully double flower with glowing yellow petals edged in firey sunset orange. Ring of Fire blooms in flushes throughout the growing season. Each amazing flower is about two-inches across.
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.
Ring of Fire Miniature Rose has perfectly shaped buds that are 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.
