Ballerina - All Purpose Repeat-Bloomer


If you are a beginning rose gardener, start with Ballerina. She grows in full sun and part shade. She repeat blooms from May to November (she really does). She has beautiful blooms in sprays that make for wonderful cut flowers and has red round hips that I use in winter arrangements. I have one growing as a pillar rose on a tutuer in full sun. I have seven growing in part shade as a hedge. I have two more in a mixed border. I have two more that have been trained as tree roses, purchased from:

Thank you so much for the information about Ballerina .. I have already ordered two other climbing roses and thought that would be it for this year. BUT .. I am in love with this one as well and I may have to give in to my longing .. the problem is WHERE on earth am I putting it ! LOL
I am so envious of your beautiful gardens !
Thanks again !
Joy
