Caldwell Pink – Polyantha – aka ‘Pink Pet’
An “Earth Kind” Rose
I love the “button” center on this rose.
This rose forms the most magnificent sprays on blooms right on the bus. You could cut the entire spray and place in a vase. This one had over 50 blooms!
Now, if I could just get my hybrid teas to do that!
This rose is part of the Earth Kind Series of roses. Very hardy and disease resistant, they almost thrive on neglect. I never spray this rose for disease or pests and apply only an annual application of composted cow manure to fertilize. I wait to prune this rose AFTER the first flush of blooms, as it always tends to throw out come new unwieldy canes that I will want to try to keep in check.
