My very favorite container rose is the Bonica. She has the most beautiful pink blooms. I had her growing in a pot for years. Very hardy in a zone 5 living in a pot and kept outoors year round this way. If you want some height, take a chance on a clematis. I had one growing in a pot, she's finally in the ground since we moved. I had a trellis in the pot and she came back nicer every year. Keep the roots shaded and the plant in the sun and it thrives.

Ok. My mom told me the same thing and she think that is why hers didn't do well. What does this mean? You mean the plant needs to be shaded partially and the vines in sun? I planted a clematis on a fenceline and it pretty much gets full sun about 6 hours a day. So far it is doing ok but it is still in it's baby stages.

The roots can be shaded by mulch, other low growing plants and afternoon shade won't hurt it. Yes the vines in the sun and the roots in the shade and they are pretty happy.

More info please!

To anyone growing in pots in a desert climate: What kind of pots, what kinds of roses, are they full sun, shaded, how often do you water?

I have had no luck at all and I'm open to suggestions.
