Belinda's Dream, Grafted or not?

achang89(Z6)July 13, 2014

I purchased the Belinda's Dream from Lowe's. It looks strange. The rose is V shaped, with one side like grafted, but the other size not grafted.

Does this rose normally come grafted? I just planted it, so I can't tell now.

I have three that came own root from Edmunds. I'm thinking that is standard for Belinda's Dream, because most Edmunds roses are grafted. It seems to be a rose that does really well own root.

Don't know the answer to you question. BD is borderline hardy here and my own root plant died to the ground last year. You might want to plant a bit deeper just in case yours is grafted. It seems to be heat lover, and my guess is that you will get better performance if it is in full sun (and perhaps near a wall?). Don't think mine is getting as much heat as it wants.

I bought it in Spring and I do not like it sitting in the pot. I just planted near my shed, facing the west side. On the east side of the shed, I planted some other roses. I know west facing is not ideal, but the rose has to go somewhere.

I'll wait to see how it grows. I may want to move it later on to a more permanent location and that is a different story.
