The new jasper rose is a bright orange rose with a pink and purple blossom that looks as if it was brought back from the Caribbean.
It’s one of a small number of flowers that have been brought to Australia in recent months.
The flowers are being introduced to Adelaide’s central market after the city was chosen by the federal government to receive one of three new jade green jasmins for the 2020 Census.
Originally published as Jasmina rose to be exported to Adelaide article The first jasper roses are due to be sold on Monday, April 7.
The city’s new flower is expected to sell for around $2,500-$3,000.
It was brought in as part of the $4.2 million federal jasMINA initiative to reduce the number of foreign workers entering the country and provide better employment opportunities for local people.
The jas MINA rose is expected be exported from Adelaide to the United States for the first time on Tuesday.

It is the only flower to have been imported into Australia.
Mr Newman said the government was looking at a range of options for how to export the rose.
“It’s been the subject of some speculation that we may export it, and it may be possible to import it, but we haven’t decided whether to do that yet,” he said.
“But what we’ve done is we’ve taken a very close look at how to deliver the best bang for the buck.”
And we’re in the process of finalising our export plans and then we’ll announce our export arrangements and we’ll then see what’s the best export deal that works for Adelaide.
“He said it was important to keep the price of the rose low.”
The cost of exporting jas, in terms of labour, in the case of jasmedas is a lot less than the price you would pay to buy one of the jas mains that we’re currently exporting,” he explained.”
So we’re not just exporting jaspers to Australia and we’re actually getting those jaspers at a low price to keep that price down.
