Reliable and free-flowering, award-winning Rosa ‘Ballerina’ is a compact, rounded shrub with large sprays of slightly fragrant, single, soft pink flowers adorned with white centers. Blooming continuously from summer to fall, they are produced in great quantities and stand out against the attractive foliage of light green leaves. Loved around the world, ‘Ballerina’ is a charming and versatile hybrid musk rose that is perfect for the mixed border, as a flowering hedge or ground cover and in containers. Good disease resistance.

  • Winner of the prestigious Award of Garden Merit of the Royal Horticultural Society.
  • Grows up to 4-6 ft. tall (120-180 cm) and 3-5 ft. wide (90-150 cm).
  • Best grown in full sun to part shade, in rich, moderately fertile, moist, well-drained soils. Best flowering and disease resistance generally occur in full sun. Apply a balanced fertilizer and mulch in late winter or early spring and a balanced fertilizer again in early summer.
  • Grow as a specimen or in small groups in borders, cottage gardens, foundations. Also effective as a hedge or ground cover. Its medium size allows it to fit small gardens and makes it perfectly suited to container planting.
  • Prune as needed in late winter to early spring.
  • Propagate by hardwood cuttings in autumn or by chip budding in summer
  • Bred by Bentall in 1937
