I'm a complete rookie when it comes to roses; and most other plants now that I
think of it. So now that I've planted a few roses I've looked for pointers on
pruning and encountered the following advice from an online seller: "cut the
cane at a 45-degree slant about ¼ - ½ inch above the bud eye"
So my question is, what is a "bud eye?"

Roses are not a "beginner" plant as these typically need lots of
special care to grow well. An "eye bud" is located where the
5-leaflet of leaves meets the stem. There will be a tiny ball in that
crease when viewed from the top. BTW, it is generally not a good idea
to prune a rose at the time of planting, and pruning roses before cold
winter months is not wise.
