|I've tried Knock out roses, but do I finally need to accept that roses just don't do well here? Even climbers/|
|Don't give up just yet! The American Rose Society has chapters in Madison and Milwaukee so I know gardeners are successful with roses in Wisconsin. They do require winter protection, and if you choose the hardiest roses available, I think you'll have success, too. Here is a list of recommended roses from the Madison Rose Society: http://www.madrose.org/docs/Re...

Good luck with your new roses!
