Rose Newbie Needs Help

7 years ago

I am an extreme newbie when it comes to rose propagation. I do know that most roses are grafted onto different root stock, hence the suckers. What I want to know is if I root a cutting from one of my hybrid roses, will it be a clone of the parent, or something completely different?

Also, regarding rose seeds.. My roses produce seed-filled hips every year. This year one of the seeds apparently took. I have a baby rose plant that sprung up in my yard. What can I expect from a rose grown from seed? Will it revert to something wild, be a clone of it's parent, some sort of hybrid, etc?

Thanks in advance for any info that you can give me.
