A rose can be artificially reproduced by cuttings, which are really a type of cloning. The actual term used for this process is called Grafting. We bend a branch of the plant and bury a portion of the stem in the soil and keep a stone to ensure that the branch doesn't come out of the sun. After a few weeks, roots start developing out of the branch at the place where it was buried in the ground and a new rose plant is ready.
