Rose trees

Zone 32163 | Anonymous added on May 12, 2018 | Answered

I have a rose tree that is about two years old. It has another trunk that has grown up beside the original trunk. It is about 3 inches from the original trunk. Can that be transplanted? Mark.cathy.wittmer@gmail.com

Rose trees are grafted trees. The new trunk coming up is from the roots of the grafted standard that the top desired rose was grafted onto. So that would not produce another rose tree. It is best to prune out the new trunk as it only steals nourishment from your current rose tree. Sorry to say this but eliminating the new growth is the best thing you can do for the rose tree you love.
