I'm looking for some experienced imput..
I recently moved and while cutting the lawn one day found a very old rugosa rose. It has started to bloom and I'm suspecting it's a Hansa. It has been neglected for years, has many dead canes, at least half if not more. I plan to give it a hard pruning after it is done blooming. But I'd also like to establish it in another location where we can enjoy it more. It doesn't appear to have sent out any suckers for some time as all of the canes appear very mature. What's the best way to try and propagate a new one in another location? I thought I'd try and breakoff a large piece with as much roots as possible and nuture it through the summer. I know these roses are extremely hardy. Any other suggestions on how to best set it up in a different location. It is far too large to move all of it.
