Growing Roses

Hello, sending this out to all the rose experts out there. I purchased a 'bare root' rose bush and planted in a container. However the leaves that were coming up were very dainty and did not look like they would flourish, compared to the others I had. So I pruned it back. I have not seen any sign of life. Will green shoots grow again. I wondered if I was over zealous with the pruning. Hope I have not lost it. It is a Scarlet Queen Elizabeth and was looking forward to seeing it bloom at some point.

    Sunny D , remember it's only April. Scarlet QE is one of the Grandiflora roses and I'm sure it'll bounce back  in no time.

    Many thanks Hostafan 1. It's my first go at growing roses so not sure what to expect. I will wait....
