Grand Old Opry (Welopry), a miniflora rose bred by Verlie W., Jr. Wells (2009) and introduced in US (2009). The 2.5-inch blooms have yellow base with red and yellow stripes with moderate fragrance. It's very healthy and repeats well in my garden. Helen

    It's a cutie! Love seeing the variety of roses in your garden. This one must look different everyday.

    Beautiful rose Helen! Love the colors and it’s good to know it’s fragrant.

    My Swirly Pop mini that I know you have too just bloomed after being planted in the ground. Hope it survives!

    Really cute and pretty at the same time! I dont have any minis but I am inspired to try some with all the awesome photos I've been seeing on the forum lately!

    Thanks everyone.

    HalloBlondie, you are right, this rose looks different every day.

    Ann, my Swirly Pop is still in a 5-gallon pot but it's very health. From my experience, Dave Bang's roses normally have great health so I think your Swirly Pop will do fine.

    Sultry, when you have the info please share which minis you want to try. They must be special :) Helen

    What a beauty! I love stripey roses and one that is stripey and bicolored? That is just the best!

    Pandemonium (MACpandem/Claire Rayner/Pan), miniature rose, bred by by Samuel Darragh McGredy IV (1982), introduced in New Zealand by McGredy Roses International (1988). The beautiful blooms have yellow and orange-red stripes with mild, musk fragrance. I just got this rose from Rogue Valley Roses, and this is the first bloom. I like it a lot. Helen

    Helen, both your roses look beautiful. I won't be able to choose since I like both. This thread is a treat to me since I don't grow minis. Thank you for showing your beautiful, one of a kind roses. They are very special.
    Excellent photography :)

    What a beautiful collection of roses you must have, Helen. I like the novel colored varieties, too.

    Thanks Plumeria Girl &Ben. I only have a small garden so before I buy anything I have to debate whether it's unique and beautiful enough (to me) to have a spot in my garden. Ben, What novel colored roses do you have in your garden? Helen

    If you would like another mini by Sam McGredy that is adorable, try Minnie Mouse AKA Roller Coaster. The flowers on it are just so cute! Also, I love Peppermint Parfait. Another great mini rose whose flowers are not so mini.
