PLEASE NOTE : This is a sport of my miniature 'Glowing Amber'
Here now some basic information about this mini sport : (more detailed info about bloom, habit & growing coming soon)
The bloom form, foliage and growing habits are identical to 'Glowing Amber'.
-----The blooms open "Just as slow" as 'Glowing Amber's.-----
In my opinion the blooms are more colorful than those of 'Amber Star' (first sport of 'Glowing Amber') and the foliage is dark green like 'Glowing Amber' s compared to 'Amber Star's' foliage which is a grayish light green.
The dark green and shiny foliage is above average disease resistant, as are all my other introductions (mainly minis) in the last 12 to 15 years. Some of my roses can go 2 to 3 months, or longer, without spraying a fungicide.
This rose will be available from Select Roses & Hortico by about July 2007.
