Ballerina is a lovely shrub rose with small pink and white flowers. It strikes really easily from cuttings - Ballerina roses grown on their own roots are strong and healthy.
Ballerina Rose Flowers
I have a row of Ballerina roses by my pond, and several others in different gardens. They are all allowed to grow quite tall, and some are climbing into neighbouring trees.
All my Ballerina roses get the hedge clipper pruning treatment, and none get sprayed. The flowering season is late, so like my Flower Carpet roses they fill in the flowering gap in my summer garden nicely.
Ballerina Roses by the Pond
Ballerina is like a small-flowered version of the rose Rosy Cushion which grows in the side Pond Paddock garden. Thus I have created a rather lovely colour echo with these two roses. And wait - there's more! After the pond Ballerinas have finished their first flowering flush the pink colour is taken up by the next door Filipendula. Ha! Colour style in the Moosey Garden!
