I'll find out tough rdv is

I removed it from my small rose garden, because It was so sparse. I put it in a 1 gallon container and it was still hanging in there. I thought it would be happier in the ground in a shadier area than in a pot in the hot sun.
I planted in my slope. Things didn't go well and what ever soil was in the pot fell apart. I went ahead and took the bush and whatever dirt I had and planted it. I got out all the air bubbles. It will get regular water and B1 and good luck.

almost 3 weeks and the last week of 100 degree weather. Seems happy for now. On the other hand my baby ht are not happy.

Look out! My RdV is enormous! It took it a while to get started but once she did she took off and took out 3 trellises, lol!

RE: I'll find out tough rdv is

I had RDV for over 20 years. Every year she got munched by deer. I sprayed her with deer repellant last summer and the deer left her alone. She finally got munched after a good bloom and looked leggy and sparse. Her new home is on a slope with the other old garden roses. Less sun and lots of room to sprawl. The area has been ignored by deer for a long time.

Mine must be canes popping up all over where I planted her.

Either that or one day I will wonder what on earth I was thinking.
