I bought a potted rose from the local grocery store, it was labeled a victory rose if that helps. Anyway, when purchased the flowers were a lovely lavender color. I took it home and repotted it into potting soil mixed with coir fiber and some rabbit manure and rabbit urine soaked pine pellets. The next buds the plant formed were a florescent red/pink. Has anyone else ever had this happen? Are some roses like hydrangeas and the flower color is partly determined by the soil ph?
I'm so disappointed, I can buy hot pink roses by the dozen but it took me nearly a year to find the lavender colored one. Any help or ideas are greatly appreciated.
