In the past I have received mini roses and have always had them die, no matter how tenderly cared for them. This last one I got as a gift I decided to plant outside, and it has flourished and grown very fast. I put it in the sun area. So, if you have bad luck with these pretty mini roses, try placing them outside.

Yes, I have one I've had for several years - it loves the outdoors. People tend to think, as I once did, that miniature roses are delicate houseplants, but they're not. Thanks for sharing, and God bless you!
I've had four in a row die, so now I'll try this!
And when your husband paints the house, make sure he does not step on it!!!!!
I have always planted my mini roses outside. Some I have had for 10 years or more, I just care for them like any other rose. Hubby just bought me three more at the buy one get two free sale at the local Big Y. I love them.

Twenty years ago I planted a red rose bush on the south side of the house and never saw it again. I thought it had died over the first winter. This spring I pushed aside the pink rose bush next to it, and there it was, happily blooming away. I swear it wasn't there before.
I received one for my bday last month, and within a couple of weeks it was dead (I thought). I did take it outside in a sunny area, and it has come back! woo-hoo!
I got one as a gift, too. it has done well outside for the past 2 years, even through winters in PA. But this year, a little bunny ate the whole thing, leaving only a stick. But who knows, maybe it will still come back. Hope springs eternal!
