Hello,
yesterday I went to our local shopko store and I spied this rose. It is a tree rose call gingersnap. The poor thing was tipped over in the pot and the roots were exposed. It was marked $49.99. I asked the clerk about it and she said I could have it for $12.00.
I just had to rescue it :)
I brought it home repotted it and it already looks much better, it has 4 blooms now and lots of buds. I think I might need more orange roses.

Welcome to the forum! I'm sure you need more orange roses; you sound like a natural at rose rescue.

Sue ...

Welcome!

Just a suggestion. Don't allow it to bloom right now. Let it grow roots and plant. Once it gets it's roots under it, it will be happy to bloom.
I'd rather weed than dust ... the weeds stay gone longer.
