@crabby58 it’s freestanding. I purchased at a Home Depot years ago in a one gallon grow pot. It’s grown a lot in a few years.

Thank you @dirtgirlworld I’ve had her for three years and she did much better this year. Two and a half months of blooms vs the usual three weeks.

@sunlovin yes I found it at Home Depot a few years back. I’m trying to root a few cuttings in water. I’ll update in a few weeks to show progress. It may be too late in the season but I’m still giving it a shot.

I have the full size, I don’t know why but I could never get it to root in water. I could never force it to bloom in spring either. It took about 4 years after I planted it to flower. 🌞

It’s bloomed since the first year I’ve put it in the ground, the flowers just didn’t last longer than a few weeks. It was saddening. Then this year I made sure to have a schedule for my garden. I fertilized all plants once a week during growing season. This gave me flowers and roses all season long. Different fertilizers for different plants but they all got fed more than water this year. Epsom salt also helps plants grow lush. Once in a while I’d sprinkle some near the base. @sunlovin

I’ve always wanted to try Epsom salts. Maybe next year. 🌞
