Question by dan the man: When, are for how long will my wild roses bloom?
In early spring, I transplanted 3 wild roses from my road to my garden. Most of there leaves fell off, the plant looked un waterered, dead, but I took good care of it and it made a great recovery, all the leaves are finally back. I took 12 more wild roses and made there own flower bed for them. Most of the leaves are already crackly, and falling off. I transplanted them about 2 weeks ago. I suspect that most of the leaves will probably fall off anyway, and I think 2 of the wild roses might die, because almost all of there leaves are fallen. Some new leaves are finally starting to grow, and they are a nice green colour. I know they won’t bloom this year, but next year, when, and for long will they bloom? They are about a foot to 2 feet tall, and the ones on the road have been blooming for about a month, but there arn’t very many blooms because no body dead heads or trims them. Thanks:) And one last thing, I have sweet peas, and are about 5-8 inches tall. When will they bloom? Thanks.

My wild roses always bloomed from early June until frost. They would have done better had they been transplanted in the fall or winter, but they are hard to kill. Mine did not bloom the first year, either, and I transplanted them from the plastic pot at Lowe’s (lot less trauma than yours went thru). They are just in shock. Give ’em another year and they’ll be really pretty.
