If you know the parentage of this rose, or other details, please contact us.
In spite of the series of species-like names given by Sims, Sweet, and others, names like Rosa semperflorens var. minima, this rose is not confirmed as a species rose any more than the other early Teas and Chinas are confirmed as species. It was used to breed a family is dwarf Fairy Roses, known as Rosa lawranceana's, but it is probable that they were not species either. For now, HMF treats this rose as a cultivar.
