@ Claudine I got my first miniature rose plants a few days ago. It is very tiny but full of buds at the moment.. I will put up a picture as son as it is in bloom.. it is in a grow bag and I am a little hesitant to transplant it into a container.
I will get a few more ... if I can manage some space.

I have tried growing some miniature roses before. They are not that difficult to take care of. However, the ones that I had were missing something which I like about roses - the scent. So when I plant roses, I tend to go for the big red velvets. These give off a very strong and heady perfume.

I just got some little red miniature roses. My boyfriend came to visit me, which is the first I've seen him in person in over a year. He'd planned on buying me your average bouquet of roses but I asked for a live pot of miniature roses instead :) They were so pretty but now they're dormant (I think) I have them next to my window which lets in a good deal of the cold air outside. It's losing all of its leafs and flowers and I'm a little worried.

I'm glad I read this thread. A friend once gave me a pot of miniature roses, but they died in the fall and I threw them out. Now I regret it because now I'm learning here that I could have perhaps saved them :(. They were so delicate and beautiful that I hated to see them die. I'm going to get some more in the spring and give it another go because I hate to fail.

I don't know how I missed new posts here, in one of my favorite threads. Maddie, your miniature rose is so lovely! I'll post pictures of my roses as soon as I'll have them back in my room. Now they're dormant in the attic and although to me they always look beautiful, I think it will be better to wait with taking pictures.
Lanie, yes, if you moved your roses to a colder place they probably would survive. I hope you'll have new ones and I hope they'll be very pretty:D

Very nice, Maddie! You are all making me think I should give miniature roses a try again. My plants seem to fare better outdoors so I am waiting for things to get a bit warmer before I do anything new. My mom has plenty of fruit and veggies going so I think I will stick with herbs and flowers for now.

Right now my roses are dormant and aren't very photogenic because they don't have leaves, but I have some old photos on this computer. Unfortunately the quality is really poor because they were taken with my old cell phone.

This is my very first miniature rose, it's much bigger now:

Pink rose, these flowers are fragrant:

And this rose I got right before the winter:

Those are lovely Claudine.. I am particularly fond of pink roses.. Pale pinks. I will have a picture of my pale pink roses here when they bloom.

The pink one was the second rose I got, it's very dear too me. Surprisingly, the flowers slightly changed in color - last year they were a little bit darker than during it's first summer.
I plan to take more pictures and for sure I'll post them here because I'm so proud of my roses:D I hope soon it will be warmer and they'll start to grow and bloom again.

I have always loved the miniatures but have not been pursuing flower plants the last few years due to lots of pressure to deal with other problems. Perhaps a miniature rose would help..

Growing a miniature rose is always a good idea:DThey're the loveliest plants and they're rather easy to grow. It's fun to take care of them:)

My miniature roses from Valentines Day have all rebloomed and I'm quite pleased, I've been thinking perhaps I should prune them back a bit over winter. I was worried they wouldn't survive indoors so I repotted them separately and two are living in garden #1 and two in garden #2. Every time my sweetie looks at the ones in the garden at his place, he remarks on them symbolizing his love for me. (Because they are still growing - even though I am the one seeing to that, lol.) I tell him next time I want white ones. We shall see.

Thank you! Unfortunately, miniature roses in the second and third picture that I posted here aren't alive anymore:( I drowned them.
The red one is doing great though, it's my oldest rose and it's really big now.
