|I have three of these rose bushes in my yard. They've been there much longer than I've lived in the house, so I do not know what they are. They were planted along a decorative fence and sprout long stems, but I don't believe they are climbers. I'm garden impaired, so I'm looking for basic advice on pruning and care. Thank you.|

|Welcome Kajg! It may help the experts if you can describe the rose more fully: how long have you owned the house, does it have thorns, is there a fragrance, does it bloom repeatedly? And anything else you notice about it. Also the folks on the rose forum may be more helpful.|

|The roses have been here probably since the house was built in 1994. The bushes are six feet tall and four feet wide. I have been cutting them back in the fall to half their height and trying to control the suckers that pop up all over, but I really don't know anything about pruning roses, except what I've gleaned from You Tube tutorials. Blooms have no fragrance than I can detect, they bloom continuously; stems have thorns. The buds grow in clusters. I'm in Zone 4A.|

Sounds like a wonderful Rose to have growth like that in zone 4! Hope we find out the name. It's very pretty!
