My sister is moving, and has a beautiful Coral rose bush in her yard. I would like to know how to cut off a part of the bush that I could get to grow, without it becoming wild. What part do I cut, how long a piece, and what would I plant it in? Thank you.

I mention this because many of the hybrid tea roses are grafted roses and some of the varieties simply have weak root systems. On the other hand, if the rose is a shrub rose growing on its own roots, you may be able to simply dig up and remove a sucker, or rooted shoot, from near the base of the plant. This would be an easier method of propagating it.

Good luck with your project!
