The Green Ice Miniature rose has small, double blooms that when fully opened are reminiscent of old garden roses.
They begin as tiny white/apricot colored pointed buds that slowly open with a hint of pink, into white, then later soft green. The little miniature rose flowers are nicely displayed with the glossy, dark green foliage.
The miniature rosebush has arching canes, on wide spreading plants that can grow 2-3’ tall.
The Green Ice Miniature rose bush grows vigorous, and becomes quite bushy. The rose plants are excellent when used for hanging baskets. But don’t stop there, plant them in a window box, or plant a few at the front of a border, and enjoy them all season.
This rose is the greenest color of any other rose. Planting it in the shade will make the color even deeper. It is a most unusual, and unique rose bush, with pretty little petite flowers.
