I've always wanted rosebushes, and finally ordered 3 this year...Sunita and 2 Buck roses (Serendipity and Silver Shadows). This was really my husband's choice - orange is his favorite color! When I received the rose at the end of April, it was only about 6" tall. I planted it, and for the first several days it didn't look too great compared to the other 2 roses I planted at the same time. It may have been transplant shock or maybe I just had to get the watering schedule right. But before long it started to thrive and grew faster than the others. This was the first to get a bud by about 2 weeks, and the first rose bloomed at the beginning of June. The rose is small - but my plant is only about 14-16" tall right now! It is beautiful and I can't wait til it blooms again!
