Sucker - or not?

I am pleased to have grown 3 young roses from cuttings at the 1st attempt. These were taken from a bush planted by the developers near my house. 
I don’t know what it’s called but it’s a beautiful rose (pic of some blooms from the ‘mother’ plant.)
My question is - what’s your opinion on the shoot that has emerged a few inches from one of the roses? (see photo) They were all in pots until a couple of months ago when I transferreds them to the newly dug border. I added manure and compost - all the plants/flowers are taking off.
Sorry - photos are sideways. Mystery shoot has red leaves - near bottom of pic.

    Suckers are shoots from a rootstock which is different to the rose grafted on to it ... your plants are cuttings are ungrafted plants on their own roots so they cannot have ‘suckers’.
