    Idea My daughter has bought me a dozen beautiful, multi-colored roses from Wal-Mart for Mother's Day.  I know that my fiance' had brought home a "climbing vine" and we cut the stems down and kept them in water and they re-grew roots.  My question is this: Can we take the roses and cut down the stems and put them in water and will they grow roots back like the vine did?  Or is there any way to plant them as they are and get them to grow?  I am just starting to try and grow things and am clueless & really need help.  Thank you. Big Smile

    Unfortunately, the quick answer is no.

    Any cut rose will never "grow roots" in water. Roses must be propogated either by grafting onto another rose or by trying to root a healthy cane.

    (not a bloom). You should be able to find the smame color roses in your local garden center in a pot that you would be able to plant outside.

    Hope this helps you!
