You can grow roses in Florida, but not all kinds do well. Here are some that thrive in Florida:
Hybrid Tea Roses: Red -- Crimson Glory, Etoile de Holland, Mirandy, Tropicana; Pink -- Charlotte, Armstrong, Dainty Bess (single); Yellow -- Eclipse, Golden Scepter, Kings Ransom, Lady Elgin, Mrs. P.S. DuPont; White -- K.A. Victoria, White Knight; Bicolor -- Comtesse Vandal, Lucky Piece, Pres. Herbert Hoover, Talisman.

Floribunda Varieties Recommended for Florida: Red -- El Capitan, Floradora, Fusilier, Red Pinocchio; Pink -- Fashion, Pink Chiffon, Pinocchio; Yellow -- Allgold, Gold Cup, Goldilocks; White -- Ivory, Fashion, Saratoga; Bicolor -- Circus, Rumba.

Peonies don't like the heat and humidity in Florida. Sorry!
