Rose Bush


Anonymous added on May 14, 2016 | Answered

The canes on my rose bush turned black after this harsh winter. Is it dead or will it come back? It's an ever-blooming yellow rose.

I live in Northern Colorado. Many of the rosebushes here have canes that die way back, sometimes so much so that I prune them back to within 2 inches of the ground surface if not more. Most of the time they come back okay. If you pull the soils back at the base of the canes and see some green cane material they should come back. If the cane is black well down into the ground and to the union point of the canes, it may have died.
