Can miniature roses do good in a window box?

angelbuck(z9 LA)May 9, 2005

I have just purchased my first miniature rose plant. I love it so much, I ordered three more plants last night. I don't really want to put them in the ground outside. This is because I have 3 kids and alot of children that play around our house,I'm worried they won't leave them alone and will kill them. I also know that miniature roses won't do well indoors. My question is, will they do ok in a window box? They will be outside, but high enough up where the kids and animals can't get to them. If I put them outside my kitchen window they will get alot of sun. Does anyone else do this? Does anyone else have any other suggestions? Thanks alot!

Depends on the variety, without knowing the names we can't really answer. Minis can get more than 3 feet tall. "Mini" refers to the size of the flower, not the size of the plant. You can grow them in decorative pots, I have a few in plastic faux-terra cotta pots.
