Pretty n Pink

This was my new purchase today. It was the prettiest rose plant there was at Home Depot.
I haven't really grow roses before, but could not pass up this beauty.

The variations on the blooms are just so awesome.
So, if any of you have any suggestions for me. I well take any and all suggestions in taking care of it. I will be planting this in a planter. An urn type. I will hate to see this beautiful plant die at my hands. I generally have good luck with plants in general. (click pictures to enlarge).

What a beautiful rose bush you have there. Unfortunatly I am of no help to give you tips, most of my yard is shady, very non-friendly to roses that usually like a fair amount of sun to bloom well...

I love your new rose plant! Wonderful color, PINK, Yea!! You know how I love PINK! The best advice I can give you is make sure to use some Osmocote fertilizer on them, make sure you water a lot while they are getting established! I like to mix in organic compost too, oh and when you plant it make sure to plant it deep enough, don't leave the crown out of the dirt! OK, so I was FULL of advice...I adore roses and have about 40 or more in my yard! Loved seeing your new post, enjoy that new fabulous pink rose...

Oh Glenda,
I love your new rose, it's beautiful.

Gosh, it looks like Donna Lynn gave you some really good advice, I may need to write it down - that's great!

You asked about my Princess Di rose, I love it and have had it for about 5 years (I think now) it started out in a container too and is now in the ground, but it did great when it was in the container too. I think as long as they're given lots of love (and probably everything Donna Lynn said that I didn't know, they do great!).

Happy night - oh, I love Home Depot too - always want everything there though, but who doesn't?

Glenda, Your rose is so beautiful. I don't have any rose advise. I would like to grow some beautiful roses too. I don't have any yet. I'll have to take Donna Lynn's advise. Have a fun day! Love,Rachel

Hi Glenda!
Gorgeous pink rose! The prettiest I've seen. I'm not very good with potted plants, I put them in the pot, water them and see what survives! So I'll not add any advice!!
Hugs, Sherry

Beautiful Roses! I think the color is just incredible! I had an aunt that won a house full of blue ribbons for her 235 rose types she grew! But I have not grown one! I am having an appreciation for them lately though, what a beautiful flower! I have liked pink since I saw what Judith could do with that color!

Thanks for visiting my blog, you are such a nice visitor!

Glenda, Thanks for the very encouraging and sweet message you left on my blog in regard to the loss of my dad. I sooo appreciate your words!

I want you to know that I love what I've seen here on your blog so far and I plan to come back and browse longer when I have more time! You have great style!

Hi Glenda
I already commented on the beautiful rose, just lovely.
Wanted to let you know the antique faire is in Petaluma. Sunday only 8-4 on Fourth and Kentucky Streets.
Maybe I'll see you there? There's a great shop on Kentucky called Summer Cottage Antiques, my friend Michelle owns it - you should stop by there for sure if you do go!
Have a great weekend!
