I am looking for pots for my roses and I want the terra cotta plastic ones but the place I am looking at don't have the gal size I want, so I emailed them asking if they do, but... What they do have is the black flimsy looking ones, which do I get the black I can get more then the clay color but would they hold?

Buy the biggest ones. You can spray paint the outside of the pot whatever color you want. Use a spray paint that works on plastic.

You need the bigger pots but keep looking. I know they're out there in the color you want and the size you need. Even that 6 gallon pot isn't big enough for a full size rose. You need to have pots around 15 to 20 gallons to keep a rose in a pot permanently.

Home Depot has terra cotta plastic pots. Mine lasted over 5 years no problem.
