  Rosa 'Ballerina' - Hybrid Musk (1937)
 
Ballerina Rose in the garden
Rosa 'Ballerina' planted at San Marcos Growers garden.
 
With single, pink-and-white blossoms the flowers on this rose could almost be mistaken for those of an apple tree. Classified a hybrid musk 'Ballerina' was introduced by J.A. Bentall in 1937 and it is of unknown parentage. The team of Ann and John Bentall who tutored under Joseph Pemberton were by then quite well regarded having already introduced 'Buff Beauty' and 'The Fairy' and much of there work revolved around the Pemberton Hybrid Musks. 'Ballerina' forms a 5 to 6 ft. tall shrub with arching canes covered with rich light green leaves and a continuous prolific display of small single blossoms in domed clusters. The lightly fragrant blush flowers, white in the center and deepening to pink at the edges, are followed by tiny orange-red hips. An excellent plant for a container planting, border or hedge where their long trusses of blooms can be appreciated. Blooms well in bright indirect light. Winner of the Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit in 1993. Hardy to zones 4-9.
