Years ago when we had the greenhouse I kept perennials outside after the main greenhouse was closed for the summer. It extended our selling season. That was also back when we had display gardens that were weed free. ( Now called the wild gardens) That was what we did …we weeded. Trying to keep the woods and weeds at bay was a struggle. ( We closed the Greenhouse Business in 2008 due to the economy and Far Guys Trigeminal Neuralgia.)
Every few weeks one of us would whack off a wild rose that wanted to grow right next to one of the display racks. It loved that spot…one day I dug down and dug the roots out.
As you can see I was a failure. Apparently it liked root pruning.
They bloomed beautifully last June and then sporadically until Fall.

So it there a lesson in all this? Maybe…wherever you are whatever happens to you even if someone hacks off part of your roots…bloom and someday your beauty will be appreciated.
