My First Rose

Peace rose (a/k/a Rosa Madame A. Meilland)

For whatever reason, Costco doesn't strike me as a place to purchase plants. So when I found myself standing in front of shelves of bareroot roses, I was skeptical.

No need. Per usual, Costco provides.

I planted my first Costco bareroot rose on January 25th after soaking the roots for 24 hours. On March 16th, after very little fuss, the first bloom appeared. Not sure if this plant will surviving the scorching Texas summer, but time will tell.
