How long before you give up on a bareroot rose?

11 years ago

A couple of weeks ago I planted about 25 bareroot roses of various types. Most are doing ok with a few leaves or small flowers to tell me they are still alive. A few are showing off already and sprouting new growth. I am trying to be very careful with them so they don't die in the summer heat. However, two of them are Brilliant Pink Iceberg and they both have shown no signs of growth as of yet. They don't even have leaves, just the original thick canes. Can anyone give me some advice on "waking up" these bareroot roses? Is the "BPI" known for being a slow starter? How long would you watch and wait before giving up and returning them?

Thank you so much for your help!
