I have a standard Rugosa Tree Rose , Wild Berry Breeze and I want to find out the rose stock used for the trunk of this standard tree rose. It has produced a sucker that has white and pink buds, in clusters and I want to show the spray at a rose show on Sunday. It is a J & P rose but the company rep did not know the name. it was introduced in the early 2000's.
Any help is appreciated.
Thank you-

Click the green menu item "Roses" and search for the the Peace rose by name.  Now click the "Available From" tab for a list of suppliers.

I bought an "Irish Gold" rose a couple of years ago.  It has performed very well in the Phoenix area, but it has done something new this year.  It branched off near the base (not underground like a sucker) and bloomed with small magenta roses with 7 +/- petals.  Is this from the root stock and if so, what is it so I can tell people.  My next door neighbor had the same thing happen to one of her yellow roses also.

Yes, the magenta flowers you're seeing are from the root stock, Dr. Huey. You need to follow the cane back down to where it originates, and rip it out of the root system. There are multiple growth buds where that can starts. Simply cutting it off would be the same thing as pruning it, and will result in two or more new growth starts instead of the one you now probably have. Removing the entire cane, from the point of origin, should prevent it from regenerating.

Thanks for the reply Kim.  It is indeed Dr. Huey from the pix on Help me find.

It may be the rootstock. What you describe sounds like Dr. Huey, a very common rootstock. Look it up and see if this is the flower you've got.

If it's Dr. Huey you want to prune those canes off flush or as flush with the bush as possible. This rootstock is an aggressive grower and can quickly overtake the grafted rose, taking energy for itself.

The other possiblity is a Sport. A sport is a natural mutation which mother nature throws our way every now and again. Sometimes they are stable, and often times they aren't and will disappear on their own.  Notable sports are Rosa Mundi, Chicago Peace and Easy Going.

Best of luck

Thanks for the reply.  It is infact Dr. Huey.  I'll enjoy it for a short while and then cut it off.

I am trying to find a Canadian source of a hybrid tea rose that was grown by Jackson & Perkins and was called Brandy (Arocad) Apricot with a US PL Patent Number 5168.
Can you help?

We have this rose listed in our database. If you click on the menu item Roses on the main menu to the left and type in the rose name in the search field, you will be taken to the rose page. You can see a tab at the top of the page labeled Available At. If you click on the tab, you will see a list of nurseries which have informed us that they carry the rose in their current inventory.

Updating nursery inventories in the database is always a work-in-progress, so it is possible we have listed a nursery which no longer carries the rose. However, the vendors listed represent our most current information about suppliers of the rose.
