Well hello rose people! Hey maybe someone will have a notion about this question: when I read about pruning all the sources say the inside of the cane should be greenish white if it is healthy. I pruned my rose bush down to about 2 1/2 feet from as high as twice that height, only thing is the wood in the middle is a mocha color. So, I'm wondering if I should just leave it alone as is being that the canes had buds on them all the way up, or if I should bite the bullet and do a hard prune down to 5 or 6 inches above the ground. Appreciate any input!
