Comments Minnie Pearl is "the archetype of excellence in Miniature Roses" according to Botanica's Roses. ARS members bestow on it a stellar 9.0. It's high-centered blooms are well formed. Sometimes they are dusted with crimson and sometimes the bases of the petals hint at orange coloration. All of these subtlties are ones that really make it shine on the exhibition bench. In the garden it's healthy and it stays in bloom for much of the season.
