I have had some success with propagating roses from current year growth in same way as with woody shrubs such as buddlehia - in mid/late summer take an 18" woody stem cut just below a bud and stick it in the ground 9" and leave till following year should bud OK.

I'm not a rose expert and I know that there are huge differences between rose types - above works on old shrub roses - you may come unstuck if it's some type of grafted modern rose.

Good luck

I don't know whether it's what you're talking about but the Rose of Sharon is a hibiscus I think.
Self-sufficient in rasberries and bindweed. Slug pellets can be handy.

Hi there, My grandad used to take rose cuttings. All he did, was take a cutting in the autumn, then put it in a bit of ground that could be left for a while, (over a year!!!!!). The cuttings did relatively well, though they weren't as strong as a grafted plant, and it is a long time to wait for the results!!!
Peas out!
