Breeder's notes:
This is a strange little rose with a growth habit similar to 'Si', but about half the size. It almost always has at least a few flowers on it although it is not a strong grower. I doubt it would grow any larger than 8 or maybe 10 inches tall. It is a very full, rounded little bush with the tiniest leaves. Blooms do not exceed 1/2 inch in diameter. I consider this a "collector's item", best suited to those who like to give special attention to the needs of similar odd micro varieties. (IE: feed well, protect from diseases, give it a prime location and optimal sun exposure)

Although I found this variety to be somewhat fragile and lacking vigor, it is now available through at least one US source; see "buy" tab.
Notes:
The name is a double entendre, by the way. Do you get the joke?
