Stole a "body bag" of this bare- root on a rootstock for only $3.33 along with its parent, the Mirandy rose, from Ollies 3/15. Appears very heathy and clear and is branching out, in moist peat mix in a bucket by the window.
Will see how this makes it thought the 5b winters, but is worth the gamble for the price!
*** Growing near Houston, TX: sub tropical zone 9a. Mild winters, hot, extremely humid summers that last half the year. ***
Purchased 4/13 from Home Depot.
