Multiflora Rose plants, once touted as a great erosion control and wildlife
habitat, has become a noxious weed that can grow out of control. With it’s hearty root stock it is difficult to remove or control. Permanent removal from an area can require extensive digging to remove all of the roots. But even that may not be enough. An application, or a few applications of a chemical herbicide might be needed to permanently remove the plant from the area.
- The Multiflora has an ability to travel outside of the areas where they were planted, but it became a huge dilemma for grazing cattle
- The Multiflora generates deep thickets and it chokes out native vegetation which also forbids the forthcoming of new trees
- The Multiflora rose is formed from another plant who was once a rosebush, but has now became a different color
“Depending on how long multiflora has had to establish in your garden or landscape, managing multiflora roses in the landscape can be a seriously long one that requires full attention.”
