We bought several varieties of mini roses last summer (2013) and kept them in 2 gallon containers throughout the harsh winter - a number of days below freezing, unusual for our area (N. Alabama). They got regular water but no protection. As of March 2014, all three copies of Gourmet Popcorn did great and are leafing out beautifully, whereas some of the other mini varieties died or had so much frost damage I don't know if they'll recover (4 copies of Daddy's Little Girl were a complete loss). So I'm not sure Gourmet Popcorn needs a lot of frost protection! I just planted it in the ground in front of my front porch.
Update Sept. 30, 2016: Gourmet Popcorn is still doing well despite not getting as much sun as it should. it is still a healthy plant but doesn't bloom as much as it I believe it would in a sunnier location.

The blood line of sports are not correct. The sport should have the same pedigree as the original variety Popcorn, that is 50% of each parent, and not 25%.
That's just due to the fact the sport is considered as a new generation, which it is not.

Thank you all for the great job you are doing here for our pleasure and interest.
