I'm no rose expert but it's my understanding "antique" or "old" roses can be propagated well of which I think this is one. Anyway it's worth a try, it's a super hardy bush rose. I used to have a bunch of different kinds of roses and they seemed to need a LOT of care. This one doesn't.

And thanks for the "add a link" tip, I hadn't noticed.

Most rose bushes are grafted onto a foot stock that will provide more vigor to the bush. Because of this, if you start new bushes from cuttings the roses the new bushes produce will be of the same variety but the plant may not have the vigor that the original one did.

Thanks for the info. I've always wondered how you can get new plants from rose cuttings.

I just saw this today and thought I'd share. I only have one rose bush but it's super hardy and blooms almost all year round so I think I'll try these tips for new plants.
