I have a beautiful rose tree in my front yard. It has grown its own baby rose tree (which is taller now than the parent tree!) beside it. What is the best way to seperate the two and transplant the baby?

It's sprouted from the root stock.It will be different than the rose tree cause they are grafted at the top.You can cut it off and root it in 6-8 inch pieces.roses will root with or without rooting hormone.It just varies by rose.sometimes rooting them is tricky.I finally had decent luck this winter,but we're all old wood cuts.
Good luck!

Let me know where its growth is sprouting FROM.

You could also try air layering the cane to root,but don't let it bloom while doing so s it will work on rooting not produceing.Most rose tree's are grafted on Dr Huey rose.

read the tabs for info

If you decided to air layer.The 1st hint that your grafted rose shows color change you will need to rip the cane out cause it is mutating(don't always happen)

The giant size "baby" is coming up from the ground directly beside the parent plant. The parent plant has bloomed and it is the same color it was last year.
