Rose bush pruning and shrub ID

I know this rose bush is toast but there are some others that have new growth at the bottom of the bush and I am wondering if i can trim them all the way down? Also I was wondering if someone could tell me the exact name or better yet maybe tell me a site where I could ID them for the future. I know I could go to the greenhouse and they could just tell me, but I'd like to be informed.

It looks like a knock out rose. Could be almost any type if it has been sheared repeatedly. You can prune it nearly to the ground depending on type of rose. Some are grafted and anything sprouting below the graft, usually at the soil line, will not match the top of the plant.

The rose is knockout and it wont recover.

The others are Juniper, which will likely be replaced, and Yew which will also likely have to be replaced, they don't want to be kept small and wont take constant pruning.

Yep I did find out they are knockouts. I don't think it's a juniper. It reminds me of a cedar tree. Lady at the greenhouse thought it was a type if arborvity shrub.

Other question is the local greenhouse has all of these for $40 a piece. Is $80 fair for pulling the old ones and replanting? There will be close to 10 replants.

Wonder what is killing them? Salt, dog pee etc. Are you responsible for the new plantings? If so I wouldn't plant anything until I know what happened to the others. Take your picture with you to the nursery. they'll ID it.

You would think they would lol I feel like this is the blind leading the blind lol. The harsh winter accounted most everything. We went Dec-Feb without a thaw and most of that was 0 to -20 about every night. The toasted juniper I don't know. I guess its been dead for a few years.

From where I'm standing it looks like Juniper. Don't most Thuja(Arborvitae) have flat branchlets and leaves? Almost fan like when separated.
