Medium pink Miniature.
Registration name: SPRoheather
Bred by James A. Sproul (United States, 2004).
Introduced in United States by Nor' East Miniature Roses in 2006 as 'Heather Sproul'.
Pink.  None to mild fragrance.  25 to 30 petals.  Average diameter 2".  Very large, double (17-25 petals), cluster-flowered, in small clusters, classic hybrid tea, high-centered bloom form.  Blooms in flushes throughout the season.  
Medium, compact.  Medium, semi-glossy, dark green foliage.  
Height of 18" to 2' (45 to 60 cm).  
USDA zone 5b through 10b.  Can be used for beds and borders, container rose, cut flower, exhibition or garden.  Disease susceptibility: mildew resistant.  Remove spent blooms to encourage re-bloom.  Spring Pruning: Remove old canes and dead or diseased wood and cut back canes that cross. In warmer climates, cut back the remaining canes by about one-third. In colder areas, you'll probably find you'll have to prune a little more than that.  
Breeder's notes:
has long tapered buds with good exhibition form; excellent resistance to powdery mildew.
