Could Rosa rugosa be grown in a pot?



I've had one in a pot for two years waiting for me to find the right place to plant it. It has not gone mad size-wise, although it will when I plant it out (I have now found the spot for it) and the pot is fairly large but not enormous. So I think the answer (from experience, Kat,) is yes. No real problem. It seems to 'bonsai' itself.

I would agree with that. I grew two a couple of years back from seeds taken from hips. One of them was potted up last year when it was about 6" high into a 10" pot, and is now about a foot and a half high and bushy, the other is in the ground, has grown to over 2 feet and has one flower this year. So, I think they could be in a pot for a couple of years at least.

Thankyou Sarraceniac and Wilma I ask this ?as I really love the smell of these but really do not have a space to plant out but would like to have grow in a large pot.
