this is a miniature, but doesn't seem to be the same rose as above. So Cal Rosarian's photos are what I have!

This is the 'White Delight' page. Unless the color is added somehow this pink rose just does not look like the other photos of the specimin.

I've grown White Delight since its year of introduction. It frequently shows pink blush to the flowers in cooler weather, but the rose in this photo is definitely NOT White Delight. It is too intensely pink, the form is off as is the foliage. It's a very pretty bloom, but not this variety.

I'm Happy to see yours bloom. I really wanted this plant for my garden (zone 6b). I just received one and it is very small with many dead leaves. I am protecting it as the early morning temps are at 30.

What should I do to prepare the soil to plant a rose in the garden?

When you are ready to plant a rose in the garden, take into consideration the growth habit of that plant, both the part that you see above ground and the unseen (but very important) part below.
[From The Complete Book of Roses, edited by John Mattock, p. 42:] The roots can in a short space of time (two years) penetrate to a depth of 6 feet, provided of course that there is an amenable environment to grow into. There are two types of roots: 1) a fibrous root system which is relatively close to the surface and is the channel by which the plant can absorb the benefits of manure and fertilizers; 2) tap roots.
[From The Rose Garden, by William Paul, pp. 71-72:] There is one practice which has been too frequently adopted in planting Roses singly on lawns -- that of placing the turf close up to and around the stems immediately after planting; this cannot be too highly deprecated... Were they [the roses] allowed to become thoroughly established, the turf might then be laid on without producing such injurious consequences. But it is desirable to avoid even this... the turfing of the ground prevents in some measure the air from permeating the soil, which proves so beneficial to the growth of the plants...
