Innocence Miniature Rose
Very disease resistant!
They stand out beautifully against the glossy, dark green foliage.
You'll fall in love with these precious 1½-inch, exhibition-style blooms! They appear in flushes throughout the season on very disease-resistant plants with glossy, dark green foliage. Growing to 2½ feet high and wide, this very hardy, low-maintenance miniature rose is ideal for dressing up even the smallest garden spaces. And of course, its small size means it's a great choice for patio containers as well.
The mildly fragrant, light pink to white blossoms, which open from attractive pointed, ovoid buds, stand out brilliantly against the dark, healthy leaves. This is one little garden gem you'll want to dot throughout your beds and perennial borders or use as an eye-catching specimen displayed in your outdoor-living area.
Plant 'Innocence' in moist, well-drained soil in full sun. Prune in spring, removing old canes and dead or damaged wood and cutting back canes that cross each other. In warmer climates, the remaining canes can be cut back by one third. You'll probably have to prune a bit more in colder climates, where it will also benefit from winter protection. Var: 'SAVinn' (PP#10,352). Zones 4-11.

What to ExpectContainer roses should typically be planted in late spring and fall. They’re easy to plant (all you need is a trowel), and they provide instant gratification, as they aren’t dormant and will have buds within a few short weeks, if they don’t when they arrive. They’re also perfect for transplanting into containers and make an attractive gift.
Container roses are usually nicely leafed out, and may even have flowers on them, which is a great way for you to know when you purchase them what they’re going to look and smell like.
