The polyantha roses derive from a cross with the multiflora rose, they are dwarf shrubs that produce many flowers, hence their name. The flowers are about 5 cm large and bloom between May and June together in large corymbs, then flourish again in September. Initially globose, they have the characteristic of subsequently flattening. As for coloring, it varies from light yellow to orange. The stems are thin, they have dark green leaves, formed by 7-9 ovate leaflets; they have a diameter and a height of about 60 cm. Because they form bushes of limited height, they are used to create hedges, decorate the edges of roads, parks and even be cultivated in pots. Because, like all roses, they cannot stand water stagnation. Care must be taken with special attention to drainage, especially in pot cultivation, by layering gravel of different grain size: large on the bottom, medium in the middle layer and fine on the surface. Polyantha roses must be pruned several times during the year: in late winter, after the first flowering of May and after the following flowering until autumn.
