Decision MadePosted: January 13, 2019
A rose bush I bought many years ago was mislabeled and turned out to be a climbing rose. As I did plant it under a Bottle Brush tree, it took full advantage and made its way to the top.
I had been debating on whether or not to cut it back as it is probably stressing the tree. A recent windy thunderstorm made the decision for me and knocked the long cane from the tree.
I haven’t cut it back yet, as I’m enjoying the roses dripping down from the tree and the pollinators like the winter treat.
