Here at High Country Roses, all of our plants are grown on their own roots. That simply means that we produce our roses by method called Asexual Vegetative Propagation. In more practical terms, we induce roots to grow on sections the rose’s stem through the application of plant hormones. Sometimes the process is referred to as cloning because the resulting plant is genetically identical to the parent. No matter what you call it, we produce between 50,000 and 70,000 cuttings each year.
