Roses and Woes

My favorite rose Chrysler Imperial gave up a couple of years ago. It produces beautiful big flowers and smells like lemon. The original one I had met its end after 10 years of blooming. Recently, I was able to find a replacement.
Another of my favorites is the China Green Rose. It has been in the garden for at least 12 years, but some of it is getting old and weak and split.
Hopefully, the new canes will allow the rose to continue.
To add to the woes, several other roses have suddenly declined. They are all antique roses on their own root stock and hopefully this sprout will be a whole new rose bush.
Some roses are not so lucky and even after months of waiting it doesn’t look like this poor rose is coming back.
