Justice Miniature Roses says this rose has soft pastel pink petals with just a hint of mauve blush and ivory on the back making a display unlike any other miniature to date. Exhibition form, winter hardiness, and disease resistance, to boot!
Jennifer was removed from the Auckland Regional Botanic Gardens (ARBG) Display Trial because its trial period expired.
