Wheeping china rose

I made a trip to Roses Unlimited to pick up my winter order today and added a Wheeping China Doll rose to my van. So pretty! I would love to hear from those of you who have this rose. Do you grow it in a pot or planted in the ground. I'm thinking of planting mine in a very large pot so I can enjoy watching it wheep down the sides. (mine is not a tree rose). I would love to hear how this rose performs and if anyone has any advice to its care since this is my very first polyantha!

RE: Wheeping china rose

Is it a Weeping China Doll?
One of my first roses was a Weeping China Doll. It did not fit wherever it was, and I had an old large pot, so I place it in the pot, scooted it over to the shade near the metal boxes where the phone, etc was located, and forgot about it.

It still blooms and grows today. I cut it back every year, and it comes back again. The roots have grown down somewhere. The pot is long gone except for the top that is about and inch from the soil. it is sunken. When I walk past it, I have to shake my head and move on. I cut away the weeds to get to it, and do not know what to do. It is very pretty as it blooms all by itself, but I have no idea where the bottom of the pot is except it is way underground.

I often think I would like to get another one since it is very pretty, and this time I would plan where it would go, but I have not seen it for sale.

I think it is a good purchase and it will thrive well.

Thank you Sammy, you've reminded me it can take some shade so that gives me more options for placement. You've also showed me the rose needs little care that's for sure!

RE: Wheeping china rose

Sammy, try taking a cutting. My Weeping China Doll rooted easily.

I have one as a standard in the front yard and the cutting. I plan on putting the cutting in a fairly large plastic pot inside of a green ceramic pot on the patio. I think it will look nice cascading over the sides of the pot.
