I just purchased a couple of fortuniana roses from J & P for the 1st time. Came in what looks like 1 quart square containers.
My question is why are fortuniana rose root grafed stems so small, yet supposed to be a such a good rose producer? Compared to other type root stocks I see?
Fort stock is supposed to have a better root system and therefore a better producing bush, but the ones I have seen and got are pretty spindly looking?
How long would it take for a just purchased small fort rose plant to start producing flowers?
