Abstract Propagation of roses by stem cuttings is one of the simplest and most used methods to propagate this ornamental species. Indeed, most of old roses, English roses, miniatures and some rootstocks are commonly propagated by cuttings because they can root easily and, further, grow vigorously on their own roots. Every year, millions of roses are propagated by cuttings to support the needs of different sectors (e.g., production of rootstocks, cut roses, garden roses, and pot roses). In this article, we describe some of the main anatomical, ecophysiological and morphological aspects related to adventitious root formation in rose cuttings and the main internal and external determinants influencing rooting and final quality of rose starting material (rooted material ready to plant). Relevant strategies and developments in rose propagation by cuttings are presented and discussed.
