Progress of a rose

Post  Herbert A on Thu Oct 23, 2014 7:02 pm

Hallo

In spring 2009 i digged out a little rose from my fathers garden. The rose was there for 15 years. The rose has small flowers with a beautiful color.

The first year i planted the rose in a deeper pot so that the roots can grow well.

This picture is from 2009 in summer.



In spring 2010 the rose was planted in a smaller pot.


Flowering in summer 2010

I'm laughing in amazement and delight! What a nice effort! I grow roses, but never thought of growing them with bonsai techniques! This was from your Dad's yard- any special significance/meaning to it?

One year later (2011), i changed the position, and the rose got a new and crazy pot.



The branches grew longer and the pot was not high enough. So the rose got an new pot.


During the summer i noticed that parts of the bark were dying. So i removed the bark and saw a fine movement of the living part of the bark.


So i planted the rose again in a deeper pot for strong growing of the living bark.


I was happy to see that the rose made a new bud just on the top of the trunk.


So i let the sprout grow long to thicken the line of the bark.


The movement of the living bark is really good.

There was a little problem. The trunk was thicker on the top. So i had to remove same deadwood.


Looks better.




The rose was growing strong last year, so i could plant her again in a nice pot.

Rosa polyantha, High 25 cm, pot Hackl Conny







I hope you enjoy

Very nice. I understand, as my mom is 89 and I am beginning to think the same way.

Alas, I think I liked it better before it became a cascade. Everyone's different, I guess.

What a great story with wonderful pictures of progression. Your rose is lovely and I thank you for showing something I wouldn't have thought of.

I agree. I liked it best when it was flowering in 2010.

wonderful progression, great use of a not frequently used species. Love it.

The current 2014 design has the most refined trunk, I did like the rough, unrefined trunk of 2010, but the 2014 is much more refined. I like it. I hope in the future your design allows for more foliage and more flowers. Flowers are the strength of a rose, a design that allows more of its best feature would take this refined trunk over the top. Nice work and well documented. Thank you for sharing.

Sure, but it is 4 years further along. If the same work had been put in on the original design . . .

Ah well, what is, is, and it's nice in any case.

Hi

a update of this rose.

In the early spring the old bark of the rose can be removed carefully. After that the bark has a colour like a Juniper.
Now i can start to develope the crown of the tree. I think this year the rose will be blooming.

I´m very sad.
My father died suddenly on 26. June 2016.
Now the rose is my memory of my father.

I made this pic just a few days before.

sorry to hear of your loss...
may the rose live long.

(inspired by your original post on this, i hunted through many many dwarf roses at the nursery and found one with a thick, interesting trunk to begin with... will begin work in earnest at the first cut back this fall)

any tips on your techniques would be appreciated
