Lady banks roses

Corning, CA(Zone 9b)

CLOSED have a wonderful Lady banks rose bush, that has done so well for me for the last few years. I would like to propagate it for a friend and am not sure what to do. Can someone lead the way for me? thanks ahead of time. Joyceg41

I have heard that they are one of the harder roses to root. ( Not helpful, I'm afraid.)

I think I would try notching the bark at a node toward an end of a cane, dusting with rooting hormone, and pegging it to the ground to see if it will put out roots. Then you can cut it free when it does.

I managed to root a couple of them by cutting a cane at a bud eye and then making shorter cuttings (about 3-4 inchesl long) and then putting them in soil to where at least one of the bud eyes are under the soil..I also scratch it at the bottom n the other side of the bud...Good luck!

I'd pay attention to Melva's advice; she knows what she's doing.

As evidenced by the many baby roses I am surrounded by....some of them elude me...I must have started 25 or more of the Lady Banks...and just 2 of them decided to root...I think you have to speak sweetly to them. (I have a friend who says you have to hold your mouth just right)
How are your roses doing? I will be ready to send the others soon.

Hi Melva. I lost three of the babies. Unfortunately I don't know which as they were among the de-potted ones with labels at large; the rest are thriving!
