Re: Swamp rose

What kind of soil is yours growing in? That may be the difference between yours and mine. As long as I get the runners within the first year, they are quite easy to pull, but after that, its a different story.

Hm. Interesting. I've never had a problem with mine sending out runners at
all for the several years I've had it.....at least not yet.
There is another native rose that grows here in Texas wild......it definitely
sends out runners, and the roots are so very deep that it is almost
impossible to dig it out. Beautiful white flowers though.

Mine spreads by sending runners out in all directions, threatening to
overwhelm any plant in its path - and the runners move fast - I
literally have to check the area around the mother bush every couple of
weeks to assure I get them when they are small. I spent almost 3 days
pulling canes from the center of red twig dogwood, daylilies and
rattlesnake master, and away from the bald cypress. I still like the
rose, but have to figure some way of taming it!
