Even bush roses are grafted onto a stronger rootstock, Hazel. Only cuttings become 'own rooted', and sadly roses don't do well on their own roots here. The beauty of having own rooted roses, if you can get them to grow, is that if they sucker it is that same rose. With grafted roses it's the rootstock that suckers and it can overpower the rose grafted onto it. The grevilleas are beautiful, yes, and I saw some I'd like when I found those sites for you. They are better bird attracting plants than roses, being native. I have a few, but none of the sensational ones.
