Cecile Brunner Rose

mnwsgal 4 MN(4)April 22, 2008

Has anyone here successfully grown this rose? I see that it is listed on some sites as a zone 5 hardiness.

I have a small plant that I have grown in a pot from a cutting of my SIL's rose which I have overwintered in my unheated garage for three years. I am wanting to plant it in the ground. Will it survive our winters or do I need continue to bring it inside for the winter?

P.S. This is my only rose so I am a rose novice.

I don't have any experience with that rose but if you're willing to mound the base of it up with mulch or dirt late in the fall than it should survive just fine. The canes may die down to the (mounded up) mulch line or the snowline but they will regrow quickly in the spring. Mine go through this dieback every year. I grow a ton of roses and only a handful are rated for zone 4 or colder.

What?? Only one rose?? For sure you will have to work on that and get a couple more this summer. You don't want poor Cecile getting lonely out there all by herself....
