I was given two Mini Brite roses in 2000. ‘Pretty in Yellow’ (gone to god) and ‘Pretty in Red’. This last one is still doing well. The label says they were Jackson & Perkins roses and there were five in the series. I can’t see that ‘Pretty in Red’ is in HelpMeFind, but it may be under another name?

Looking up "Mini Brite" I come across Roxy Kordana, a red mini patented by Kordes and introduced by J&P "around 1995". The photo doesn't seem all that similar, but who knows? It's highly likely the situation where a dozen different red minis were supplied under the "Pretty in Red" name so there would always be something to ship, no matter what time of year nor in what quantities. Great for marketing and retail supply but terrible in this situation. Sorry about that.

The bloom and bush of my 'Pretty in Red' is about two thirds smaller than 'Roxy Kordana' so I am sure they are different, if similar looking roses. I am quite sure you are right about "a dozen different red minis". Just as well it never really caught my heart-strings. It just sort of ....came, lived, and one day will die....and won't really be missed at all. But I was interested recently when I noted how long this potted colour rose had lasted. Thanks Kim.

You're welcome Patricia. I'm sorry I couldn't have found it for you.

We had a spring fund-raising day in our local town yesterday and I sent an esky full of old rose blooms for the tables and pots of cutting-grown roses. I found a wonderful way to label the pots. I printed out the HelpMeFind page for the rose in question, cut a heavy-duty plastic page protector in half, inserted the HelpMeFind description, and secured the cut side of the protector with sticky tape. Then threaded tall bamboo (barbecue) skewers down the rings of the page protectors and inserted the skewers down the side of the pots. The labels stood up like little flags and gave any purchaser everything they needed to know about the rose. Cheap as chips and very effective. Thanks HelpMeFind.
