Arrow Searching for old (by age) roses

Does anyone here have or know anyone who has roses that are at least 100 years old available/for sale? I am looking for either the actual mature bush/plant itself, division cuttings or own/self root cuttings. I'm not particular about species,etc. and will cover shipping and so forth.

Thanks!

Alice

Default Searching for old (by age) roses

Talk to the local Master Gardener or talk to a old Graveyard facility.
Many good people take cuttings and propagate roses that are at least
that old. Some are local found and some are imported by wagon / train.

Normally there is a Grave Yard registry on a website by state / county -
Google will help.

Sure - just not hard and back all the way.

If you need to take a cane back - do so.
Just don't cut off all the leaves because
it has to put energy into the roots for
growth and flowers.
