Question: We moved to this area (Northern Idaho)last August and wonder which roses do best here. Is it possible to grow Tea Roses?

Answer: Hybrid Tea Roses are generally hardy to -10 to -20F, but will need some protection in the form of mulch during the winter season in your area. Here's a list of some of the hardiest roses that should thrive in your gardening region:
Shrub Roses:
'Applejack' rose spotted with crimson
'Carefree Beauty' pink
'Champlain' dark red
'Eutin' red
'Golden Wings' yellow
'Morden Amorette' pink
'Prairie Dawn' pink
Tea Roses:
'American Spirit' red
