Tips for Pam's Choice?

ArbutusOmnedo 10/24April 16, 2014

Hey everybody,

I have a Pam's Choice coming soon as a Mother's Day gift. I'm going to pot it up before then so I can hopefully at least gift it leafed out, but what long term observations about it can you make? My mom just loves the tan/mauve roses like Distant Drums, Chipmunk, Koko Loko, Lavender Pinnochio, and the like. Any tips for success with this one? Thanks for your comments and help.

Mine is growing in a round flowerbed around a birdhouse. Right now, it is smothered in poppies - once they bloom and are pulled out, I can tell more. Seems to be a pretty tough rose - it might need a bit more sun, and I might repot it to give it some extra care. I have Chipmonk growing in a pot, has been for a few years - is blooming now, very healthy. I love these mauve/tan roses too. Were it me, think I would pot it in good soil in a nice sized pot, give it good morning, early afternoon sun and wait for it to grow a bit. Good luck!
