Confederate Rose Bush

Post  Grandpop on Wed 11 Apr - 16:18

I potted my Confederate Rose last February in perlite and nursed it to the root stage and finally got it planted. It grew like gangbusters all summer. Then along game winter and I thought they went dormant and then I thought they were dead. This spring I began to cut them down and start again. It was then I saw this:



It's not much, but it's there!

I know, I know. . . this has nothing to do with vegetables, or SFG, or MM, or anything else on the forum.
I was just proud and wanted to share it! (If you don't know the story of how it got it's name, check out the legend of the Confederate Rose.)

I don't know about anyone else, Grandpop, but I'm happy to see gardening success inside or outside the box! It always gives me hope that I can do it too. Very Happy Thanks for sharing.

Is this one you started from a cutting? My granddad used to make rose starts using ball jars as cloches with much success. I'm considered trying it but don't know exactly what to do.
