Miniature rose bush questions.

I bought a miniature rose bush at the store today. Should I plant it in the ground or in a container? I'm worried about putting it in the ground, especially since its so tiny and winter is forecasted to be bitter cold and harsh.

I'm in zone 8a, btw. Thanks!

  • I have miniature roses. You can do both. Pot or ground. I put mine in the ground in the front garden bed. Mine are a couple feet tall now.

  • i bought 2 of them in the spring, planted them in the garden out back, and they are now taller than my kids lol! but i'm in a warm, tropical-like climate.

  • Forgot to add. I live in SW OKlahoma. And mine have been in the garden for over a year.

  • I have several miniature roses in the ground,and they were planted 14 years ago. I'm in zone 9B, though, so my winters are a bit milder than yours.
