I can't seem to find a definitive answer on whether 'New Dawn' is own-root or not. If not, and all the root sprout is going to give me is a nondescript red flower, then I'm going to go ahead and dig it up now and plant something else there.

I'm so disappointed...I'd had the plant for several years and it was really starting to take off. We had terrible rains this spring and I'm assuming it died from too much water.

Well to confuse you further, New Dawn may be available in both own root and grafted plants. The rose name usually comes from the flower, not the plant.

I've grown New Dawn and this is a very healthy and hardy plant. If there is enough healthy root system left and it wants to put out new sprouts, *I* would baby it along and wait. I think if it manages to regrow from the root you will be rewarded with a nice plant which likely will be just the same New Dawn you planted.

With that kind of damage it may take this entire growing season for it to recover, and then next year it should be putting out something more rosebush. These things take time.

Azoria is right - only time will tell. When those suckers from the grafted rootstock (if that's what you have) take over we call them Dr. Hueys. Good luck with yours, I still regret losing my New Dawn years ago. Here's an interesting take on Dr. Huey roses.

Yeah, I had a 'Dr. Huey' come up once when a rose I had planted died...I was so excited to think that the rose had lived after all, until I saw the bloom. It wasn't even as pretty as the one in the article. Then I remembered what I had read about grafted roses and the root stock being a common red rose. Come to think of it, I just pulled up another Huey sprout from that rose the other day, and that thing has been gone for probably 7 years.

Just looking at the sprout, I'm wagering on a Dr. Huey....it has darker leaves than the New Dawn, with red tinges around the edges...Dawn wasn't like that, IIRC. I probably ought to just go on out there right now and dig the whole blasted thing up. But if I miss a few pieces of root will they continue to sprout?

My friend just asked me the other day if I wanted to dig up a rose her sister's husband planted by her grave 7 years ago....the cemetery board wants it gone, as it is now against the rules...I think it is a 'Knockout' rose. Will have to research to see if Knockouts are grafted. No more Dr. Hueys for me!

Poor Dr. Huey, remembered now only as the name of a rose no one actually seems to like!

LOL...well, the one that came up in my yard wasn't very pretty. Just sort of an anemic-looking flower.
