Hi! I apologize in advance for my ignorance relating to all things gardening. We've lived in a rental for a few years and this rose bush (I'm sorry, I don't know what kind, when it had flowers they were pink) was already there next to our front door, except this year it appeared to be mostly dead. I did notice some reddish brown leaves near the base and I was wondering if those are the rose bush trying to come back to life. (I known there are may weeds around as well... sorry!).
If they are, I was wondering the appropriate way to remove the dead branches.
