Rose Listing Omission


I could not find this one, maybe because the search requires 3 characters. So, just in case ...

Right Rose, Right Place (2009) by Peter Schneider
p. 167
Si, Miniature
Introduced: Dot, Spain, 1957
The smallest rose in the world, and worth growing for its novelty value. 'Si' has white buds, shaded pale pink in cool weather, no larger than a kernel of wheat. The buds are much more charming than the insubstantial white flowers that follow. The plant reaches about 8" for me and offers repeat bloom very quickly. You'd need to use manicure scissors to deadbeat it, but I have never found this to be necessary as the plant is apparently sterile and puts no effort into setting seeds.

That is a difficult one Karl. I am sure we have discussed it before but perhaps only in my mind.
After scrolling through the alphabetical S lists; and also going into the breeder’s (Pedro Dot) list of roses, I found there is a third way of getting there. I searched with BEGINS WITH and asked for Si (
and got there. I’ve added the reference and moved the photos.

Deadbeat......was that your typo, or the author’s typo?

Thanks for your help. I didn't think of Si (. And now I feel stupid for not checking the breeder list.

Deadbeat ... I was a victim of autocorrect and poor proofing.

Super Fragrant Pure Lemon with a vanilla finish. The petal's outer edges are scalloped and fancy, which give it the appearance of Peonies. Beautiful vibrant yellow buds open to finish a palish butter yellow.

Bloom size 4 1/2" average, long stiff necks. Good vase life. Self-Cleaning shatter. Tall narrow bush 5 feet tall, 2 to 3 feet wide. Blooms at top of bush, so trimming for more bushiness can be helpful to balance out the somewhat lanky habit. Can handle afternoon shade with early morning sun. Very floriferous, and often has buds forming while others are forming.

Resistant to Black Spot, very resistant to Mildew and Rust. Does not require intense feeding, and would be a top pick for a no-spray garden.

Beautifully formed open form with pointed tip petals. Quick to open but holds fully open for 3 days in moderate heat. Rain resistant. Short stiff necks don't nod or break even in heavy rains. Compact bush, heavily branches, short pedicels give the whole bush a very tidy appearance. Stays compact to 3 feet tall x 2 feet wide. Bloom size large: 4 to 4 1/2". Petals do not tend to reflex and stay separated, which gives the flower a rounded "pine cone" effect.

Moderate fragrance of apple/vanilla/strawberry and a note of freesia, becoming stronger in cooler weather and burns out by early afternoon if weather is very warm.

Petals do not easily burn, but it looks more delicate than it's brawn. Definitely fights off Black Spot fairly well, however does get some when shaded. Does best in Full sun with later afternoon shading. Prefers high humidity and 6 hours direct sun.

Edge color deepens to an almost wine/purple hue with a well-suited pH. Lighter pink in poor soil.
