"patio roses"
« on: February 14, 2010, 15:23:52 PM »
Can anyone tell me anything about these new "patio roses"? I've googled the term but on the internet people seem to describe anything from a miniature to an Iceberg grown in a pot as a patio rose and I think it's a registered name. These are not "normal" roses. They look very healthy and full of flowers in a really small plastic pot. (Compared to "proper" miniature roses looking very unhappy in much bigger bags) They have medium-size floribunda-type flowers. There are several plants growing in the pot and they don't seem to be grafted, they look more like seedlings.

Anyways, I bought a nice cream/apricot Patio Rose and I'm curious how it will turn out. No idea how to prune it, if at all.  I've been growing miniatures in pots for quite a while.

The pink one is a normal miniature "Rosy Cheeks" that I bought on the same day and the one in the small pot is the patio rose.

I grow my Iceberg in the garden and miniature Green Tea in a large pot
The green Tea I only prune to tidy up a little and this makes it rebloom.
Never regret anything that made you smile.
