The Q&A Archives: Help with Roses.

Question: I am looking for a disease resistant, low maintenance, high petal count, high fragrance rose for the state of Missouri region. I recently lost all 7 rose bushes due to the warm spring & frost that followed. I had a lot of trouble prior to that with blace spot. I need to replant all my roses but need to know what kind to plant.
Your help is greatly appreciated.

Answer: The rose breeders are still working to provide roses that meet all of those qualifications. The KnockOut and Carefree series meet them except for being highly fragrant. KnockOut has excellent resistance to blackspot in particular.
