Last year, I bought a miniature rose on sale for only 99 cents. It was such a pretty color and bloomed very well. Normally, these plants don't last past one season. I decided to try to keep it and planted it up in my vintage sauerkraut clay pot I use in the garden. I started growing very robustly this spring.
This rose is no longer a miniature rose. It came back and increased more than tenfold in size. It is now a normal sized rose and look at the pretty color. Last year, it was much more of a lighter salmon color than this year.
