I bought  Rosie about four years ago.  That first year I had 4 roses.  The next year it died.  No new growth and old growth never greened up by the 2nd fall.  it looked dead so I removed it from my garden.  By removed I mean I pulled it up from the garden which included the stem, cane, root ball and roots.  I threw it in the trash.  It wsa the only rose it that garden. Imagine my suprise when last year I saw a rose stem growing in that garden!  I did not produce any roses last year.  It's growing more this year but the stem is still quite small. The question is how can I get the stem to become thicker and will it ever produce roses and will they be just like the old plant?

What is growing is probably the root stock, which won't turn into another Rosie O'Donnell and won't bloom. Your best bet is to pull that one and start over. I haven't been too impressed with my Rosie's performance either, but I'm giving her one more year (this will be year three).

I tend to agree what is growing is probably the root stock.  Dr. Huey and Multiflora are both popular rootstocks and difficult to get rid of once established.  Both are once bloomers, if you left this until next Spring you would get either white or red single petaled blooms.


It would be in your best interest to carefully dig your new growth out carefully to get all of the roots. Then keep an eye out. Dr. Huey is famous for his tenasity.


Best of luck

I haven't had much luck with this rose - very few blooms, although what she does produce is nice. Overall, disappointing.
