Antique pegged rose pruning question

Emily Webb
2 months ago

I have a Duc de Fitzjames (centifolia) that I pegged last year. It produced many flowers up and down the canes, but now those stems are very thin and spindly. Do I cut them back to say 2"? I won't be pruning for a month or two as I'm in the Sierras of northern Calif. zone 7a. Because this is a once blooming rose, if I prune it in the spring will I get any roses this year? Should I have pruned it after it bloomed instead?
