The miniature rose, ‘Pinstripe,’ was one of my first acquisitions when I began growing roses in earnest. Ralph Moore (1907-2009) was its hybridizer. Over his long and active life he introduced many different roses. However, miniature roses are among his best known.
A little earlier I posted an image of another of Moore’s striped miniatures, ‘Climbing Earthquake.” That one is yellow and red, whereas ‘Pinstripe’ is red and white.
2019 is looking like a good year for roses in the Albuquerque area. The striped miniatures by Ralph Moore always give me a smile. I hope you enjoy them also. 🙂

I have become a fan of miniature roses myself. No variety… one grocery store carries them every summer. Such tiny gems. Hope you are well.
Hi, Anita! So nice to see you! Over the years I also have purchased a variety of roses from many different places. I’ve enjoyed all of them. When I started showing roses, I had to know the names 🙂 I was fortunate to purchase roses from some of the hybridizers who are no longer around. But I agree that they all are little gems!
Thanks for stopping by and commenting! 🙂
