On new growth or old? Actually i haven't finished cutting back a lot of roses for 4 yrs so have all this tall stuff, esp on the antique ones. Do you have plenty of room? I have large antiques, average english roses and teas. I'm just praying my minis ,ake it DH weed waked them.
I have a Lady Elsie May shrub rose that was here when I moved in. It's in shade, and I don't have a better place for it. I don't know anything about roses, but I do see them bare-root in the stores this time of year, so I could dig it up, wash off the roots, and mail it to you if you like (I wouldn't have you pay postage-it wouldn't weigh hardly anything without soil and I want it to go to a good home. I was thinking of murdering it this year anyway).
I could also do some cuttings from it, but I looked in my propagation book, and they say for roses to do semi-mature cuttings in summer or hardwood cuttings in the fall. They do not seem to think immature cuttings are useful for roses. Root cuttings of many plants including roses can be done now, but this rose is grafted so you wouldn't want those!

Why don't you go onto eBay and get cuttings from there? Seems as if you are already well set up in knowing this system, having a Paypal account and telling us about how, when you got cuttings before...and there are many sellers doing just this!
We love all roses, too! And we certainly support those rose growers who sell their labor of love...!
