Comments Berkeley Beauty is not your average miniature rose. The plant will reach three feet in each direction. The buds are high centered with pale bases and cerise tips. Blossoms open to slightly muddled flowers that don't look nearly so impressive as the buds. It's not clear that the rose always branches and fills out nicely; or that the roses it produces are very attractive once they open. But it is a unique rose and sometimes that is enough.
