I'm very impressed with this rose and feel fortunate to have it. We just had a heat wave with 90 degree fahrenheit temperatures that fried some of my roses. But as long as I watered it well, my young Marriotta rose plant took the heat with no problem at all.

This rose is very striking, with its overlapping spiral of petals that resemble those of a zinnia.  The delicate white border around the deep pink petals is spectacular.  Sam McGredy, the breeder, was a specialist in 'hand-painted' roses, and in fact, Mariotta is descended from Little Artist, one of McGredy's hand-painted series.  Apart from its unique color, Mariotta is a healthy, well-branched mini with fine disease resistance.  It deserves to be more widely grown.   Claire, St Louis, Zone 5/6

The rose garden at Portland, Oregon, used to have very fine displays of MARRIOTTA.

This is just a misspelling of Marriotta. Should not be a separate listing.

Thank you for the hint. We have merged it into 'Marriotta'.

Where can I buy the miniature rose, Marriotta?
Does Pixie Treasures have this one now? Thanks.

Yes she does, but this nursery is closing the end of September. She had about 5 plants left as of today. I bought another one. It is disease resistant and a very quick rebloomer. I just love it! It fools folks as it looks like a zinnia.

The Uncommon Rose has bought the stock of Pixie Treasures Miniature Roses. Marriotta is now offered for sale by The Uncommon Rose, although there is a waiting list for this too seldom offered rose.

Uncommon Rose "closed their retail doors" on June 11, 2007, according to the Garden Web's Antique Roses Forum:

At the Uncommon Rose website there is this notice:
"Roses formerly available from us are now available from Rogue Valley Roses."

However, as of today, September 5, 2008, Marriotta is NOT listed on Rogue Valley Roses' online catalog.
