It has not actually split the wood that I can tell but the branches are on the ground. It looks like someone landed in the middle of it

Pretty rose. Looks like each rose is loaded with lots of petals. Love the color. What are you going to do with it, Marie? Maybe pruning like Alan says, even if the wood hasn't actually split. Looks like if it hasn't split it will with the weight.
“Don't give up too quickly"... unknown, I heard it somewhere.

This rose is one my DH bought for me for 2.oo. I love it!! I guess I am going to try and prune it some how this Saturday. I have never had this happen before but it is one of my favorites so I have to try something

Wait till it's done blooming, or you could cut all those beautiful blooms off and put them in a vase. Either way works Smiling Just don't prune it back to hard, you don't want to expose the canes to the scalding heat that will soon be upon us.

Yep and it completely filled in the middle with new canes. Very strange
