This is a hybrid of Rosa multiflora. 'Wedding Day' isn't.

Miniatures leave me cold. Never liked them, still do not, but am out of room and now looking at my old rose annuals 1960-80 and realized for whatever reason, little Sheri Anne here is an amazingly "important" parent of many miniatures. So I ordered 3 from Heirloom and will see what happens when she is crossed with some recent introductions................I do love some orange-red....................maybe I can learn to love miniatures.................

They're hell when you get older and someone tells you it has a wonderful perfume.

LOL!!!!!!!!!!!! That old song that has some verse "and a taste of honey is worse than none at all" is how I feel about miniatures! SO many actually DO have shockingly good form, amazing colors, some have these traits that never have appeared in the "big ones" and maybe never will.............I just like my roses----as you know---big, loud, lusty................dislike miniatures, loathe singles (Dainty Bess is, in my opinion, proof that the old fable "The Emperor Has No Clothes' is totally TRUE, lol).............and I clearly remember 1978-90 when anything miniature just got released. The craze, the craze. And some good ones did get lost in the tsunami................78-90 seems to almost relate to miniatures as maybe the 30's did to those "post" pernitiana colors?????? Trying to open my heart and mind, lol. Sheri Anne is SPOT ON for what I look for in a BIG one...............

'Sunrosa Orange Delight. is a super easy keeper and do'er, if you're looking for an orange mini that requires low mileage effort. 'Sunrosa Red' as well.

Urban Legend and Honey Bun are also easy mini do-ers, but they're super prickly and tend to ramble a bit so not quite the same.

This rose has been reclassified as a mini-flora now by the ARS.

Kathy, I cannot find this rose at all in the Modern Roses database, either under Sharon's Delight or MORsharon?

Should be there under both. If it's not, I'll enquire. But FYI, ARS is coming out with a newly revamped database in early July.

This rose should be a floribunda. Too big of a flower for MF.

Disagree. I showed it yesterday at the San Diego county fair as a miniflora single and it won its class. It is the same size as several other miniflora singles -- Poppy, Sunglow, Maroon 8, Tom Mayhew. It would be much too small to compete in the floribunda single classes like Playboy and Playgirl. The plant itself is also quite small for me -- good for a pot which is how I have it.

Mine is the size of Paul Eckes, Jr

Reply #7 of 7 posted today by Kathy Strong's Del Cerro Garden
Paul Ecke Jr. is not a florabunda -- it is officially classed as a "shrub." Moreover, here it has smaller miniflora-like size flowers, but generally in large, fairly widely spaced clusters, on a big plant. Shannon's Delight generally forms its blooms singly, and on a small plant. The possible variations on plant size and bloom type in roses are endless, and any classification system is bound to have outliers. C'est la vie.

Another scentless mauve? How did the always-fragrant color class suddenly become so scentless in this decade?
