You may be surprised when I tell you this is a miniature rose. I bought it on a whim, thinking a miniature rose would look sweet planted in the front of this bed. I have been extremely happy with that impulse decision.
Not only is Carnival Glass a prolific bloomer, but it is also disease resistant and hardy in zones 5 though 10. I have mine in the ground, where I keep it to around 2 tall and wide. It has a slight fragrance, but you have to bend down so low to smell it, I don't think that's important. Blooms are up to 2 inches wide. They look quite sweet in a bouquet.

It would be stunning in a pot, too.
I completely understand people that get addicted to miniature roses. They're sweet little shrubs with an abundance of tiny blooms. After getting Carnival Glass, I have purchased several other varieties of miniature roses. I have yet to be disappointed.
Yes, I know - it just might be the start of an addiction!
