Fire and Ice

In Wyoming, most rose bushes are starting to lose their momentum by now. But despite the recent sweltering heat, this delightful little rose is still blooming enthusiastically.

The plant was a gift to its gardener, who doesn’t know its identity. It looks like a Pinstripe to me, but Pinstripe isn’t supposed to be hardy enough to make it through Wyoming’s Zone 4 winters. This plant has survived two thus far.

Is there a red-and-white striped miniature rose cultivar named Fire and Ice? If so, I may have a photo of it!

“…He will comfort all her waste places. And He will make her wilderness like Eden, and her desert like the garden of the Lord. Joy and gladness will be found in her….” –ISAIAH 51:3 (AMP)
