I have just figured out that this is the rose that was sold as an unnamed miniature at a local nursery a couple years ago. It blooms non-stop and has no issues with winter here in northwest Ohio. It certainly isn't a miniature as my bush is almost reaching the 4' x 4' size in the description. The leaves turn beautiful colors in the fall and I absolutely love how it looks along the front corner of my garden next to my stepping stone path. If it grows any bigger I may not be able to go on the path! I have been searching all this time to figure out what it is and was looking in the wrong class of roses! I can't say enough about how easy it is to grow, no blackspot, no japanese beetle issues and just bloom after bloom! I should add that I buried the roots (own-root) several inches when I planted and mounded compost around the base for the first winter only. Since then I don't use any winter protection for it.

Here in the Houston area with high humidity and triple digit weather, this is one of the few roses in my garden that is still blooming non-stop in July and August. It is shade and heat tolerant, no disease or insect problems. People compliment it and ask what it is. I only water it maybe once a week in the hottest weather, but even if I didn't it would probably still survive. It is an Earthkind rose for obvious reasons.

Yes, very tough.

When grown own-root it comes back readily from the roots if not removed completely. I've removed mine three times.

Does not set hips for me. A very good rose for landscape purposes.

In my garden in Lansing, Mi (zone 5), unprotected plants of 'Pink pet' suffer almost no winter die-back (less than 6 inches at the tips of the canes in most winters). This is based on observation of 4 plants of 'Pink Pet' , ranging in age from 2 to 6 years.

Thank you, Mike. I'll add a NOTE to the rose page for site users to use the COMMENTS tab so that they can about your experience with this rose in a colder zone.

Smiles,
Lyn
