Should I keep my one-branch rose?
My first rose-growing spring!
Last year I mail-ordered a Westerland rose, along with another type that's doing well. I treated them both as directed, but of the three short branches that were protruding from the Westerland's original root, only one had any growth last year or this year.
This year the single branch is producing one cane with several offshoots (I'm not sure if these are the right terms!) but the other two branches are clearly dead. The plant is only a foot tall overall.
Will it still grow to a full size? Or does it not have an adequate base to start from?
