Answer: You can try any of the mentioned roses; however, you will need to provide some winter protection. After the first frost, bring in some garden soil and mound up over the crown of the plant to a height of about 8 inches. When you do your spring pruning, be on the lookout and remove any winter-damaged canes. Rosa rugosa is a particularly hardy type of rose; you might want to try Burpee's Bonica shrub rose for similar hardiness.
