Ballerina was introduced by Mr. J. A. Bentall in the UK in 1937. The rose parentage is unknown.

Although Ballerina is officially classified as a Hybrid Musk, it is like an overgrown Polyantha producing big clusters of little single pale pink flowers with white centres around the stamens.

Ballerina has no scent to speak of but its other attributes make it hard to fault. After the massive first flush of blooms, it has a further flowering in late summer and autumn.
