Wild (Not Planted) Roses

What looks like rose bushes have been growing in my flower beds (without being planted). This is the 4th or 5th year that they have been around. They have never bloomed and I’m wondering if I should just pull them all or is there something I can do to make them bloom? They look like they might be a small tea rose – if they are rose bushes. Thank you. Sallyj

Hi Sally. It sounds like there may have been some rosebushes planted there at one time. The top part of the bushes died most likely so folks either dug them out or just cut them way down and placed dirt over them. The roots from the hardy root stock are still trying to survive so they send up little rose shoots here and there. Some of these will never bloom, others may bloom eventually with large flat deep red blooms or pink blooms. However these root stock survivors can become very vigorous and totally take over the garden areas they are in, so be careful in letting them grow if that is what you decide to do.

What Are the Red Balls on My Wild Roses?

My wild roses are done blooming and there are many red balls on the ends. What are they?😱

ANSWERS

Those would be rose hips or the fruit of the rose. Neat to see them and especially pretty in winter snows. Article Link: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/roses/rose-hip-information.htm

It should bloom for you the following Spring after transplanting. Some bloom only once per season and that is early in the season. Others will bloom very well while some young ones that have yet to mature can take 2 to 3 years.
