My Rose bush is got new growth on it, when does it bloom? I transplanted it last fall from a neighbor, she thought it was a Rose of Sharon but when I saw the thorns on it I told my hubby it was a Rose bush. I think it has little tea roses on it, not sure though. As you can see, it is growing quite well, I was afraid I killed it last year, I didn't water it too well.
