From cutting to rose bush

Hi everyone,

I had the opportunity to photograph and document some cuttings that I made of a florist's rose and I wanted to share them with everyone because I thought it was kind of cool. The original flowers came from Costco in July of 2011. They were a beautiful bouquet of light red, kind of melon colored roses (a color that is a bit difficult to describe).

Anyway, it was my first time doing cuttings so I basically just followed the instructions I found online. I made cuts with a razor in the stem and dipped it in rooting powder. Then I put them in dirt and put them in a plastic bag.

Here is a picture of the original flowers that I started with.

This is a photo of when the poor plant was attacked by spider mites (still can't figure out where those monsters came from.

This is the very first rose that it produced while it was on the window.

This is a photo of it on the dining room table several months before I planted it outside.

This is it, shortly after I planted it.

Now the flowers are starting to grow.

And a couple of glamour pics.

I hope everyone likes the pics:) Also, if anyone can identify the name of the flower, that would be fabulous:)

Really nice! I just had my first flowers on cuttings I rooted earlier this Spring! Exciting isn't it!

Absolutely, it was very cool to see those first flower buds. At first they were so small I didn't even notice, but when I finally realized, it was thrilling. Plus, when it's from a cutting, you sort of end up feeling like the parent. I remember growing plants from lima beans when I was in the 3rd grade. It fascinated me then and it still kind of does.

I didn't know that you could do that, either, and I'm impressed. Your rose is a lovely one. Thanks for the informative post. Diane

This is amazing, you got such a lovely rose in just 1 year.
It'a a lovely shade and so close in colour to the original. Nice going.

To get the name, ask your particular Costco who their rose wholesaler is, and then go to that wholesaler's site and look at their color selections. You might find your rose's name that way. On the other hand, 99% of the florist roses are never registered with the ARS, so it probably will still not be a recognized name for rose shows and at nurseries and the like. But still it's fun to know.

Here's a typical rose florist site:
