Note: The hybridizer of this rose ‘Dee Bennet’ had a goal of hybridizing miniature roses, and naming them alphabetically from A to Z. She was at the end of her career, when she got to the letter X. Thus, she named this little miniature beauty 'X Rated'.
It is a Very attractive miniature rose! Some experience a deeper red color on the edges, while others have a rose that is mostly a very soft white with a softer, less noticeable pink colored edges(It is quite beautiful either way!)
