Sweet New Rose

I was at the nursery the other day, not really looking for roses, when I spotted this sweet little rose. I assumed it was 'Ballerina' but when I looked at the tag (as it was being lifted onto my cart) I saw it was 'Silicon Valley Diamond'! This is a new rose that was introduced this year to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Yamagami Nursery in Northern California. It is only about one foot high and wide so it would be perfect for containers, but I am using it in the front of a border bed. It was so sweet I had to get two!

I too thought of Ballerina when I saw it. It has such a nice bloom. Love the way when open, it almost lies flat. Very nice...
