Default Rose Question

Your roses probably have reverted, it may not be too late to save them ...look for the leaves that look differnt on the plant and pull off any of the suckers. I have this problem with Fortuniana half way often , as a lot of places are selling roses grafted on this rootstock. It flowers once a year (white) Dr. Huey is red . I grow both of these in Florida. A lot of people do not realise that this is a problem .... are most of these roses new? are they hybrid teas? The reason most of the roses in Florida are being budded onto another rootstock is that Fortuniana is more resistant to nematodes in this area, though some roses just do not do well on there own rootstock and need to be budded to bloom properly. Plus it takes half the time for a budded rose bush to be ready to sell as a grade one.
