    IMHO , it's not a sucker if that's what you're asking?

    Yes ... perfectly good new growth.  Not a sucker  :)

    Ooh, I am getting City of York next year. Looks like a beauty.

    I think suckers tend to come from the roots, not the rootstock.

    Perfect, thank you all! I thought it was too high up to be a sucker but just wanted to double check! @WhereAreMySecateurs I’ve not done anything with it yet and it’s already given me several beautifully scented blooms and 2 new shoots! And I have found a spot I can plant it in the ground to grow across the front of the house, going to try and get it planted this week :)

    OK. The roots below the graft union then.

    Fabulous, Zugenie... please don't forget to upload photos. I didn't actually realise it was scented... huge bonus.😍

    Roots, and rootstock can be different, as in 'own root' roses, some of which can sucker from their own roots, just that it'll be the same plant popping up..

    Roots and rootstock aren't the same thing @Hostafan1   Roots are under the ground and the root stock is developed as a disease resistant stem or trunk to receive the desired plant and protect that plant or tree from disease such as phylloxera.  i.e. fruit trees, grapevines etc.
    A good hoeing is worth two waterings.

    So many types of sucker, actually. I didn't realise, I thought they came off the roots. Since we are told to bury the graft, they'd come from below ground though I spose.
