Rose rustling - 2 roses.

caflowerluverApril 23, 2012

Saw an ad in Craigslist for FREE ROSES. A local community garden was closing so all the plants were free. People had dug up whole bushes. But when I got there, the ones left were too big with bases of a foot to 2 feet. So I took a bunch of cuttings. It looks like they had been neglected for awhile. All the leaves had black spot and rust.

I would appreciate any help in getting an ID for these roses.
