To maintain your grafted rose you'll want to cut off those suckers as soon as you recognize them. Stress can cause suckers to grow so make sure your roses are getting adequate sunshine, water and nutrients over the summer months. And, keep those non-productive suckers cut down or they will overtake your rose bushes. Good luck with your roses!
