Glaucous rose seedling. What shall I do with it?

B3B3 Posts: 25,231
I found this little chap in a large container of mature diascia. 
It's  okay for now  but when should I pot  it?
Will  I need to bring it in for the winter? 
Although I  suspect it's on year two or maybe more.  I haven't a clue . The diascia have been in the container for three or four years 

In London. Keen but lazy.

    Rosa glauca is hardy. I would take cuttings of the Diascia, because you will have to rip the Diascia away from the rose.  Do the cuttings now. Separate in Late September.  There is also an aquilegia seedling in that pot.

    Thanks fidget, the diascia is big enough to take care of itself. There's probably a few diascia plants in there anyway.
    There's aquilegia and vb and s pimp and feverfew and you name it in all my pots from my weedy compost! 
    Thanks again for advice. I was wondering if I should leave it until it was dormant and you've given me my answer :)
    It's one of my favourite plants and I'd love to have another.
