A tiny plant ID, and a quick question about roses.

Sorry if it's not possible to ID such a tiny plant, I found it growing in one of my pots and was curious about what it was.




Now for the quick question about roses, is it common for a rose to flower in more than one colour? I bought a white rose and the new flowers seem to be coming out as a bright yellow.





  • No idea about the seedling - you could try potting it up if you're really curious.

    Is the rose new?  It looks to me as if the paler roses were yellow (there's yellow at the base of the central petals) and they've faded in bright sunlight.

  • Ah seedling is the word I was looking for, I did think it would be a bit of a long shot. As for the rose i've had it for several months. The first lot of flowers were a creamy white, they may have had a yellowy tinge, but they definitely weren't as bright as the new ones. image

    Were those two flowers on it when you bought it, it looks like a yellow rose to me too.

  • Lyn, the roses in the picture have all flowered since owning the plant image

    The white/ cream ones about 2 weeks ago now I think, and the yellow just started to flower yesterday image

    Looks like a baby tree to me. What have you got?image

  • Some of the miniature roses sold have more than one plant per pot - my OH was gifted an 'indoor' rose which had 3 separate bushes in the pot.

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
  • A baby tree? And sorry Nutcutlet what do you mean by by "what have I got"? I'm feeling a bit tired, and I don't quite understand. image

  • Oww that makes sense Bobthegardener. It would explain the difference in colours. image

  • Oww if it's a tree, would it be best to get it moved into a pot all by itself?.

  • I think Nut means that the tree seedling is likely to have come from seed from a nearby tree - what trees have you growing nearby?
