Description of Little White Pet Roses:
A very small rose that puts all its energy into flowering, Little White Pet is a common patio rose for growing in pots and will fit into crowded borders. The well formed, rosette shaped white flowers burst from red buds for most of the summer and well cared for plants will reward you with great big clusters opening at once. There is almost no fragrance.
Although this rose will tolerate poor soil and shade pretty well, it is a small rose that flowers heavily. For best results, we recommend a good sunny spot and feeding during the flowering season.
