Rust Disaster in Zone 10B and Zone 9
Rose lover- have more than 50 roses from CA wrote on August 04, 2018

Pos: Fragrant are remarkable n can be smell from 4 feet away. the first bloom can start at Feburary while other rose are still sleeping. 60+ petal. even though the flower never open as JP shows, it was cup shape can be 5 inch. I guest if it complete open like jp'S PIC, it can be 10 inch large bloom. Con: The rust are so heavey that it can be raining like. I spare so much neem oil and it doesn't work at all. In 10B and zone 9, we didn't get the pointed Patel. it was more like cup shape. and never be completely open. I got only 6-7 rose each year. Because it was cup shape, many earwig and spider loves to hide inside.

Among all the roses (5) which I have purchesed from J&P, this initially very tiny bush is not only surviving the local very hot summer, but keeps growing and blooming. It is living now, in its new, large clay pot.. I use the best organic-only fertilizers, and water this beauty daily. These roses look fantastically romantic, and smell heavenly. Many thanks for this enchanting and dream-like but very strong plant!

Love the color and scent

Intoxicating Rose with Perfect Form

I initially bought this bare-rooted rose based on the oval form of the bloom with pink edges. The rose had performed beyond my expectation, particularly in Colorado where it is sometimes difficult to grow roses in the varying temperatures. The bush is healthy and has several large, beautiful blooms. To my delight, I took a whiff of its fragrance today and was delighted by the strong fragrance, unmatched by any of my other roses. This is a rose I would definitely purchase again.

What to Expect
Container Dormant 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 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
Container Grown Roses
  • 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.
