Propagating Renae?

banders(z7 VA)June 5, 2006

Can you do it, LOL? I bought 2 this year and I want another one. The only places that I can find that have it are on the west coast and shipping for one plant is high.

Anyone every rooted a cutting of Renae? Hints, tips, tricks welcome.

Thanks,

Barbara

It is long out of patent, so no problem there. The easiest (but slowest) way is to layer a branch--make a small cut about 1/3 the way through a cane low down on the mother plant, dust it with rooting powder, and pin it to the soil. Check it in several months and you should have roots--it may take until the fall--in which case it would be better to leave it connected to the mother plant until the following spring.

If you read the FAQ at the rose propagation forum and do a google search on rooting roses, you will find lots and lots of information.
