Comments When a name suggests something at odds with what one observes of a rose, it is frequently the reportage of a color that is wrong. In this case, though, the rose is red. It's a pure, deep, dark red that rose breeders attempt but never seem to master in fragrant large-flowered roses. And it is a miniature rose with all the exhibition fomr small red flower, small foliage, disease resistance, and cold hardiness that one associates with miniature roses. Its canes are usually thin and whiplike making it best to use as a prostrate plant or to train on a trellis. Unlike its pollen parent, Magic Dragon, it generally will not stand on its own. It's a rose that takes some special thought to place well in the garden, but it is one well worth it.
