The long, elegant buds of this rose open to beautifully shaped, light pink flowers with much darker undersides and the ideal high-centered form of their larger relatives. The blooms are borne singly or in large clusters, always on strong, straight stems. This, together with its exquisite color combination, makes ‘Minnie Pearl’ the archetype of excellence in Miniature Roses. The foliage is semi-glossy and mid-green on this vigorous, upright plant that keeps its color and form better if it is given some relief from intense heat. She was named for an American country and western entertainer, who was also a great comedienne.
