I will need to replant new roses next year. I would like to know which is the most hardy rose that I can buy? I live in zone 8. I'm looking for a rose that has extremly good disease resistance, regular watering, and needs no maintaince, besides prunning, to grow. The hardier, the better. It needs beauty too. Also, I heard that there is black and blue roses. Is it true?

(Sterling Silver and Blue Girl). The reason that a 'true blue' rose may never be produced is that the blue pigment (delphinidin) is not naturally present in roses.
