White Rose Bush Has Red Blooms

I have a rose bush that has bloomed white roses for the last four years, now it has the big white blooms starting but there are some small red blooms on it, why?


Hardiness Zone: 5b

Thise are probably from the root stock the white rose was grafted on to. Growers use a strong hardy plant for the root and graft a prettier but less hardy rose on to that.

I am sad to tell you the white rose grated upper cane must have died and the grafted portion of the hardier root stock is still alive;( that is why it was picked to graft to). I hope the little red roses are at least pretty and fragrant.
