i have a yard with part to full sun, a baby eastern wahoo tree is planted in the middle/side place, and all around it- lawn that was dug up is potting soil/soil/ empty space. this is where i'd like to plant roses. We aleady have roses some redrockets/teas that were plannted here long before when I came to live at the house not arounds the tree but around the house/fence . but imho they are older and possibly have diseases/ect.


Would planting rose bushes beside a tree be a bad idea if the tree is naturally a smaller understory tree easten wahoo gets about 20 feet high and wide. Would the wahoo hurt the roses or would the roses hurt the wahoo. would the wahoo shade out the roses


Are there any roses/varities that dont attract bees- nobuddy right now at our house has allergies but sense its a group home the risk is high because lots of people come in and out year by year ect.


i like red/scented and big, muiltipedaled varities

Welcome!
you should be okay planting roses near a young wahoo. The roses and tree can grow up together!
Take a look at our rose database. You might find a few roses that are exactly what you want!

I don't think there is much of anything you can plant that will not attract a bee at some point. The best thing for you to do is to keep an epi-pen available, and to train your staff how to use it and when. Last time I filled a prescription for one, it came with a dvd and pamphlet. This would be a basic to keep in the first aid kit, like at a front desk or some place handy.

A person may have never had a reaction previously to a bee, food, or other, but at some point can suddenly have a reaction. No past history does not mean it cannot happen.

Heritage seems to attract the fewest bees of my 20± roses. Typing on a tablet so putting a picture here is difficult, but the ATP database has extensive photo files.
If you don't ask, the answer is always 'no.'
