Mutabilis, Butterfly Rose

Asked April 9, 2018, 12:03 PM EDT

I had one of these when I lived in the southwest. It was the most beautiful flowering bush I've ever had and I would love to have one again. Very unique, fast growning and gorgeous constant blooms. I'm in Delano, MN. It's a zone 5-6 and up rose. Can I plant this and bury it in the fall? I've never "tipped" a rose? Any way to bring it inside or do I buy a new one every spring and pot it for a season?

The Minnesota tip method works very well and most rose growers can be successful. Roses can also be overwintered in a heated garage in pots. It is a little riskier but usually works. Please see the information below to compare methods of overwintering roses.
