The Gourmet Popcorn rose, produces clusters of white, cascading, miniature roses.
This is a floriferous, semidouble mini rose that is compact, and vigorous growing. It covers itself with massive cascading clusters of 30-60 short-stemmed pure white roses with contrasting golden yellow stamens.
It is also known as "Summer Snow". Both names tell us that it is not only white in color, but produces lots of blooms!
The pretty flowers are complemented by deep green foliage that is disease resistant.
It has a long season of bloom, and once it starts, there is no stopping it! It flowers right through summer and fall.

Gourmet Popcorn is one of the all time favorite roses of miniature rose growers.
The cascading clusters make it perfect for mass plantings. It is also easily grown in a container or any place that you want a small rose. It looks especially nice planted in a hanging planter, with the delicate white blooms spilling out over the edge.
The blooms are set off nicely by the dark green, glossy leaves.
This miniature is a sport of the rose "Popcorn", and is equally as hardy and disease resistant.
Gourmet Popcorn is a great repeat blooming landscaping rose that is a consistent performer. It does well in all climates, and equally well in the garden or containers.
