Edges are prickly. Comes natural with roses. Dolores is a miniature rose gifted to me, and I wanted to be able to view her. I’ve had her in a basement in unnatural light but close to the bulbs and she has been doing great.

Easy starter rose for something beautiful and fun with blooms.

Trying to revive this rose that my mom neglected. Not 100% sure if she’ll survive, but trying doesn’t hurt! If there’s no change in a month or two I’ll throw her out sadly, but here’s to trying! Fingers crossed :)
