Old rose brought back from North Dakoka the early 20th century
This is a rose that has been in my family for about 100 years, my mother took care of it for 40 years at her house , I grew up with it. Well here is the problem, I'm no gardener but I'm the last one with it growing in my yard, I've had it 20-25 years . Now the plant comes up and only grow a foot tall at th most, mostly just a few inches tall and they haven't bloomed in 20 years ,or I haven't seen a bloom in 20 years. What should I do to Bring them back and pass them on to the younger great Nephews and nieces . I think I have acid soil which is good I guess for roses , we have lots of oak trees on the property. Their is a bug that goes after them all the time it is about the size of a small fly but it has a real long sucker on it and it eats the plant. I would guess thats part of the problem. Any help will be appreciated.
