Miniature roses, indoors or outdoors? - Knowledgebase Question

I was given several Kordana miniature roses which have flowered beautifully in pots outdoors. Will I be able to plant them in the ground or should they be kept indoors during winter? I live in Cheboygan, Michigan.

Kordana roses are hardier than many tea roses and can be grown outdoors in zones 5-9. In colder zones they may need winter protection (mulch with straw and wrap with burlap/breathable wrap). If you plan on growing them in very cold regions, or areas with severe winter weather, you may want to trench them (dig a 12 inch deep trench, place your rose in it, roots and all, water and bury it with soil, replant in spring).
