Photo not true to color!
Liz from IN wrote (July 01, 2017):
Deja Blu is a prolific bloomer and the blooms are every bit as large as my non-miniflora roses. It is growing vigorously. The habit is attractive, and foliage has a very glossy, dark green color. I'm pleased with this rose in general, and have high hopes it will survive the Northern Indiana winter. The only issue is that I bought this plant, because I loved the color shown on the website. A mauve-pink rose would have been perfect for that spot. However, it is not that color at all. It's a deep fuscia, and even as the blooms fade, they never reach the color shown on the description. I was very disappointed when the first round of blooms opened. I do not like the color at all.
Highly recommended

As an Oregonian, I love shopping here. Many of my roses have come from here.

Back to Gardening Tips





Anyone can grow roses - all that's needed is a spot with 6 hours of sun a day. Roses are even well suited to container growing, so you don't have the excuse of no garden space!

STEP 1

If planting bareroot roses, first soak roots in lukewarm water for 12 to 24 hours. If you can’t plant your roses right away, you may leave them in their boxes for up to a week in a cool, dark place. Be sure to sprinkle roots with water every few days.

STEP 2

Dig a hole about 12" deep and 24" wide. Make sure it’s large enough to give the plant’s root system plenty of room to develop after planting. Loosen the soil at the bottom and sides with your shovel.

STEP 3

Traditional images for the holiday season: Poinsettias, pine cones, red berries, and glittering silver balls! It can be transplanted outdoors after the holidays, where it can grow to 14 feet high!

Dig a hole about 12" deep and 24" wide. Make sure it’s large enough to give the plant’s root system plenty of room to develop after planting. Loosen the soil at the bottom and sides with your shovel.

STEP 3

Fill the hole with water. It should drain in one hour. If the water remains longer, dig deeper to improve the drainage – or mound your soil and plant the rose in a raised bed.

STEP 4

Build a mound in the center of the hole to support roots. Set rose on top, making sure the crown (the point where the canes join together at the shank) is at ground level, or a little lower in cold climates.

Fill the hole with two thirds of the remaining soil mixed with peat moss or compost. Tamp down gently with your hands. Add water, let it soak in, then finish filling the hole with soil. Tamp down lightly and water well.

Spread mulch, compost or bark chips around the plant to suppress weed growth and help retain moisture. Water 3 to 4 times a week until leaves begin to grow.

Your plants will leaf out faster if you mist the canes as often as possible while they’re getting started. Roses need plenty of moisture both above and below the soil to develop fully.

What to Expect
Container roses should typically be planted in late spring and fall. They’re easy to plant (all you need is a trowel), and they provide instant gratification, as they aren’t dormant and will have buds within a few short weeks, if they don’t when they arrive. They’re also perfect for transplanting into containers and make an attractive gift.

Container roses are usually nicely leafed out, and may even have flowers on them, which is a great way for you to know when you purchase them what they’re going to look and smell like.

Container-Grown Rose Instructions
  • When your roses arrive, water them thoroughly.
  • Choose a well-drained location that recieves at least 4 to 6 hours of direct sun each day. Dig a hole at least twice the size of the rootball. Mix the native soil with compost or other organic material and add superphosphates.
  • Gently loosen the rootball, place it into the hole so that the bud union sits 1 to 2 inches below soil level, and fill the hole with the remaining soil.
  • Water thoroughly, then mulch heavily around the base for winter protection. Your roses will arrive lightly pruned, so it is not imperative that you do any additional pruning before winter.
