The Vintage Rosery
Unless otherwise noted, all photographs were taken of the roses in our gardens located in Needville, Texas (zone 8b.)
`Ballerina' produced masses of single, light pink roses and makes a good candidate for a hedge. You can prune it to any size, or just leave it to spill over in a waterfall effect. This rose will produce hips if it's not dead headed in the fall. The hips are tiny and orange-red in color. As a shrub, it can get up to 6', but used as a climber, it can reach 10'.
