blush hip alba
I have no experience with antique roses, so please excuse my ignorance. Last spring I planted Blush Hip, this winter was one of the worst in years. The rose died back quite a bit, to about 9 - 12". But its still alive, lots of green coming up, and it looks like its suckering too. I pruned out the dead wood, but I was wondering, will I get any roses? Do albas bloom on old wood, new wood or both? Not much I can do about it, the dieback had to go but I would love to see a blossom or 2.
