SDLM - is it a slow grower?
I received my 3 roses from Chamblees today--SDLM, Pat Austin, and Mrs. Dudley Cross (all own root). I expected small rose plants and they are. But SDLM is almost non-existent, just three short twigs about two inches tall. It lost a bunch of leaves in shipping but still has a few. I'm hoping the roots are nice but I haven't had a chance to check them yet.
I know it is a small rose bush when mature. Any guesses--how long do you think it will take to grow to a foot tall? It's warm here, has been in the 80s for a few weeks but supposed to drop to the mid-70s on Sunday.
I'm waiting a few days to plant them so they can recover a little from their travels.
