I have better survival rate of mini roses picked up in the grocery store.

I purchased this rose not in bloom in Nov of last year. It has been in bloom since April. Quite the trooper of a bloomer.

Nice! I've got a few grocery store minis too. Most of the time I don't know what they are, but sometimes they came with a tag.
Did yours come with a tag? It reminds me of a lovely older lavender mini that's done very well for me.

All the minis I picked up at the grocery did well. Of those planted, though, I just didn't like them well enough to keep. They were rehomed. Smiling Put in some Red Drift and Coral Drift last year, which are quite small even if not exactly miniatures. Sticking tongue out Those are doing okay.
If you don't ask, the answer is always 'no.'

Tabby it did not have a name, I was lucky it even came through the winter. It was on the 1.00 table, Rolling on the floor laughing

I like the look of the minis at the feet of bush roses. I am setting up a rose garden next to the front door it is starting to look good. I have to get the colors together. I am going to move this one to go at the feet of Queen Elizabeth rose.
