Cinderella, bred by Jan de Vink, Holland 1953.

CinderellaThis is one of the most popular miniatures, still going strong after all these years! Introduced in 1953 by the famous Jan de Vink of Holland, this is reputedly a cross of Cécile Brünner and Tom Thumb. By today's standards, this is though of as one of the Microminiatures, as it rarely ever reaches a height of more than 10" tall.

This is a very consistant rose, in that it is rarely without a bloom all summer. It appears to be quite disease free, although I suspect that under the right conditions, it will get Blackspot. I have not seen it happen with my plant though. Blooms are about the size of a nickel....sometimes a bit bigger, and they often have a moderate spicy scent to them. Color of Cinderellathe blooms ranges from pure white, to cream-white, or in cooler weather, white with a pink tint. This is an excellent miniature rose for a beginner. It will perform exceptionally well with a minimum of attention, and is winter hardy to at least zone 5.

ARS merit rating: 8.2
Personal merit rating: 8.5
Hardiness: Likely USDA zones 6 to 10, zone 5 in a protected location.
Shrub size: approximately 6 to 12" tall.

Fragrance: 3.0, moderately strong, spicy scent.
