One of summer's treats is to see hundreds of small single, shallow cupped light pink flowers cramming themselves all over 'Ballerina' like so many hydrangea heads. There is only a slight musk perfume, but in all other respects it is pretty hard to fault this rose. There is a pause after the first marathon of blooms, and then a good second crop follows in the autumn.
This is a real enthusiast's rose, with a graceful rounded habit and abundant mid green foliage, growing to average height. It can be planted on its own where something special is wanted, or will make a splendid group or an amazing hedge.
It does not mind being pruned to reduce the height.
Very versatile as it will grow in the garden or in a large pot and will cope with shade and poor soil. Perfect for that 'Ballerina' in your life.

AWARDS: Royal Horticultural Society Award Of Garden Merit, 1993.
