Smoke Rings™

There's no other Mini with a color like this. Shapely little buds start off a warm melon orange-yellow color set against a mound of clean, lush, deep-green leaves. As the buds swirl open, a most surprising hue of smoky purple begins to blush at the edge of each petal, lending a mysterious effect of orange 'ringed' with smoke. This little Mini says 'Come see me' whether it's in a patio pot or tucked into the garden border. Makes a great tree rose, too. More smoke in mild temperatures.
