We got some 1/2 price plants in Wal-MArt last week. They had already lost their first blooms, but a lot of them still had buds on them. They were just rying to make room for their new stuff. I got a very nice English Ivy and a "patio rose". I planted it in a big planter on the back porch. I have never had a rose that wasn't planted in the ground before. It's kind of like a miniature rose. Is there anyone that has experience with these? Anything special I should do for it?

I got three micro-miniature roses for Mothers Day, and the care instructions are the same as all my others (basically). Usually, the things that you have to watch in a container vs. the ground are drainage (make sure your container and soil mixture have the proper amount of drainage) and temperature (when the weather starts turning colder, a container will freeze easily. Remember that the container will not hold any warmth, the entire rose, roots and all, will be the same temp as the air temp)
But, I will do some research and post what I find

Here is a tidbit of info:

Can you grow a rose in a container?
The first step is to choose the container. It can be made of any material but the size is the most important. Most bush roses need a space of at least 18 inches for their roots and miniatures need 12 inches. Soil should be a soil based compost or if weight is a problem then a peat based one. The container needs to be raised on bricks to allow free drainage. As a rule the most satisfactory tub roses are small floribundas, landscape or miniatures.

Its from a great rose forum:
