Suckers? Root-Stock? What to do?
All of the dormant roses on our new property have bloomed. Some look like old roses with long canes, and others show a beautiful rose with these old weedy canes next to them.
This is a palm tree with a pretty rose on the left, and suckers? on the right and at the bottom.
What should I do? Dig out the suckers and leave the pretty rose? There are so many suckers!!
Then on the slope there is this huge mass of old weedy canes.
Was this ever a nice rose? Should we get rid of it?
Thanks for your help. There are a couple other clumps of this wild rose here and there. I'd really rather have something nicer. Can we graft onto this or would that be a losing battle?
