Cemetary Roses.

Cemetary Roses.

Three weeks ago I visited my home town, Malvern Arkansas and Oak Grove
Arkansas for a reunion of cousins. At the Lone Hill and Social Hill
Cemeteries I collected several rose cuttings. Most are now rooting! I
have no idea what they are but plan to grow them in pots as keepsake
momentos. Many of my relatives are buried at those places. Very likely
these roses are hand-me-downs and could be very old. They could be new,
we will see.

I think that makes you officially a "rose rustler". :)
Let us know how the cuttings turn out.

Now that the cuttings are leafing out should I move them from shade to
sun?

When I grew cuttings I kept them in partial shade
until they were fairly well established. I put them
under a young Bald cypress near my garage
where it was easy to water them daily and watch
their progress. I didn't want our relentless
TX sun to dry them out, which is a real concern.

I followed your advice and they seem to be rooting. Some put on leaves
already.

That sounds great. You might even see
some blooms before long. Keep us
updated.
