The article describes the cause and treatment for a rose sucker. Evidence of a sucker being present include inconsistent quality in the bloom such as a different colored rose being produced, growing a cane that is longer and faster than the others, or having no bloom at all. General cause points to the damage in rootstock due to the cultivation technique. Immediate removal of the sucker from the main cane is the recommended treatment.
