the rose in the baggy

Monday March 8, 2010
If you've been reading my blog lately you know I'm trying to save a rose from downtown that was pulled up and tossed away by a construction crew. Here's a new picture of the rose in the baggy. It sits in the warm window that gets early morning light. I wonder if i should clip it and try to root it without the big stick which is starting to mold. Anybody have any hints?


  1. With its red growth, I have to say (guess) its class would be tea. Was the mother plant grafted or own root? Could you get a feel for the size of the mother plant?

  2. It was planted under a eucalyptus tree and didn't take it over - it was stretched out maybe 5 or six feet after a couple years of no attention. I don't know about the roots - the carcass is still downtown.
