How Deep Do Rose Roots Go?

All sorts of surmises and correspondence and statements have been made as to the penetrating quality of rose roots. Recently a statement was made that they had been found more than 10 feet down. Here is one from Albert B. Morris, of the Western Rose Company, San Fernando, Calif., as follows:

I note in the Rose Annual a question about how deep the roots of roses go. An oil company here planted Paul's Scarlet on a fence around their property about ten years ago. This year they dug out one of their tanks, which was down sixteen feet, and the roots of the roses went below that.
