Here in southern california (Sherman Oaks) my Mel Hulse sulked in the ground, but returned to health and bloom in a large container.

Mine is also sulking quite a bit--to the point where if it doesn't start doing a little better, it's got a date with the shovel. At this rate if I leave it alone it will gradually fade away.

Its parent, Scarlet Moss, did the same thing, unfortunately.

I have had much better luck with Scarlet Moss and its progeny--Mel Hulse and Unconditional Love (a great rose by Paul Barden) in pots and containers than in the ground. In the ground they simply die away; in pots they thrive and bloom with almost no care whatsoever. If no care and concern is the price of great bloom, I am willing to pay it.

Here, it is the reverse.

This was the first of my Alaskan overwintered roses to bloom in 2006.

I think that it would work. Just make sure you mulch heavily the first two years AFTER the first freeze when the ground is frozen.
