unknown roses + know nothing about roses
I moved to a new house about a year ago. There are several roses that I don't know what to do with. All need to be pruned if it's not already too late (I don't know).
I didn't do much to them last year.
Rose Group 1 (three roses all appear to be the same type)
Look too big for the space- the biggest is 4ft tall
The smaller two aren't as healthy appearing
They're in front of some Holly that is also not looking well.
If I remember right, pink flowers but I can't find the picture I took and the details escape me.
Last year had mostly top growth, white flowers.
Appears to be a climber but not supported by anything.
There was no life in the old canes last year but new growth from the base. I cut off all the canes last spring and it looks the same this spring. Is it normal to cut everything off every year?
I couldn't figure out how to post more than one picture so here's a link to a shutterfly site with my pics.
Any help I can get with at least knowing the general type of rose it is would be greatly appreciated. Do I prune now? How much? I plan to cross post on the general rose forum too.
