Glad to see a picture of a mature Jefferson Rose. I picked one up this year from Ashdown and so far I am very pleased with it. How big a window box do you have it in? I plan on keeping mine in a pot but I am tossed between a 16" or 20" dia.

Hi Liz-
--My DH built the window box on the deck---It surrounds the bay window --the main part of the window is 5 feet and alnost 2 ft. deep---

It used to be very sunny but the trees have grown so much it no longer gets as much sun but JR seems to like the spot-

It is a lovely little rose

Thanks for the information. I think it will go into a 20" pot as it is about 19" deep. I had read JR is shade tolerant and I am glad to see it can take some shade and still do well.

Love the creamy peachy coloration on this rose, and it looks to be a great bloomer--really lovely!

Its very pretty and a great idea to have the window box were you can see it bloom up close to the window.

This had me running to HMF and everything there makes this a must have. Mr. Moore produced some amazing roses. Thank you for introducing me to this mini.

Florence, that is so great looking, I am really glad you posted this.
The Jefferson Rose is happy in my garden too. It's especially beautiful in the spring.

Florence, I went to the Fort Worth Botanical Garden this week and was very pleased to see a cluster of about 5 Jefferson Rose plants in one area of the garden, just outside of the main entrance to their huge rose garden.
Their JR's looked really healthy and happy.
