Comments Starina is one of the most widely distributed of miniature roses because it is one of the oldest, one of the most durable, and one of the cheeriest of miniature roses. It spreads out a bit, so it works as a kind of landscape fill rose: you could set it between hedges to make a very large scale cloisonne. It wins awards at the show table, too.
