I bought a rose put it in a vase with water. It died after a few weeks and now its growing a branch. has anyone seen this and is it possible for me to take that branch and grow a rose plant?
Ill post a pic tomorrow just wanted to see what people say about it.
ive never seen that but it sounds like you pretty much cloned it. is theri any roots? i would try to grow it it might end up being a free rose bush

Isn't there always a but?...most roses are grafted onto root stock. That is to say, the top part of the rose bush is actually a different species of rose hybridized for either color or scent or form. The root stock is an entirely different species of rose which is only grown because of it's capacity to produce a successful and healthy root system. A graft union is formed when the two species are spliced together. There are species of rose that are not grafted like rugosas but they are the exception.
Many species of members of the family Rosacea are also grafted. Like cherry trees, apples, peaches etc.
Sorry if I'm dispensing information that you might already know. I just like to pontificate sometimes...lol...god bless
