help!! basal growth or sucker?
My iceberg rose has this insane cane that I can't tell if it's a basal growth or a sucker! It makes the rest of the rose bush look so wimpy... This growth is thorny and the roses look/smell the same as the remainder of the bush.
I read online that own-root roses don't grow suckers... I ordered my iceberg from Antique Emporium Roses where they claim all roses are own-root. Is this true? If so, why is the insane cane all thorny, bigger than the rest of bush?
Here are some pics... please help?
