Comments Cupped candy pink roses open to reveal a button eye. It's not a big blossom, but it's a pretty one. The plant is healthy and cold hardy. And it will tolerate a little more shade than many roses. Petite, by the way, refers to the flowers themselves which are about the size of a miniature rose. The shrub is only a little smaller than the average damask rose shrub.
