i want to plant a banksiae rose at the top ofa very dry slope and let it scramble down, question is would it root on the way down, by itself? i am hoping it will.
thanks

Marianne

I have never known roses to layer themselves, they lope and most ramblers will do that, you might plant something that takes a little shade and dry conditions, that will grow underneath the rose.

thanks Elaine, i have an unknow white rose in one of my hedges, the most vicious thorns known to mankind, flowers once only in spring, no scent.
this roots absolutely everywhere, so much so that i cannnot get rid of it anymore. So some roses do self root as i know to my cost.

Rosa rugosas do, they travel by stolons and some of the natives here do by seed. If you want something to hold a bank and you are set on roses then rugosas might be the way to go, do some research.
