|I love roses but don't know if I can grow them here. I live about a block from the ocean and am afraid the salt will kill them. Is there any roses that are salt tolerent?|
|Lots of roses grow well in your region, even within a block of the beach. Some of the best include: Abraham Darby: a medium pink English shrub rose. Apricot Nectar: apricot color, a floribunda rose. Belindas Dream: a medium pink shrub rose. Blush Noisette: a light pink climbing rose. Butter Cream: butter cream clor, a mini-flora rose. Europeana: deep red, a floribunda rose. Gemini: blushing pink,a hybrid tea rose. Kristin: red blend,a miniature rose. Louise Estes: pink, a hybrid tea rose.
Moonstone: white with pink edges, a hybrid tea rose. Paul Neyron: pink, an old hybrid tea rose 1869. Playgirl: pink, a floribund rose. St.Patrick: yellow, a hybrid tea rose. Sunsprite: yellow, a floribunda rose. The Dark Lady: dark red, a shrub rose. Veterans Honor: bright red, a hybrid tea rose.
Or, you might try Rugosa roses. Theses are healthy, sturdy shrubs and are native to the coasts of Japan and Korea so they are very tolerant of salt air.
