San Juan Capistrano, California. April 13, 2010. This is a rootstock sucker that I caught growing on one of my new Hortico bareroots today. It is Rosa Multiflora rootstock and was removed by tearing it off as soon as I noticed it. Notice the bright green color and the frilly stipule (the part where the leaf stem attaches to the main stem).
