No-Fuss Roses for Cold ZonesNo-Fuss Roses for Cold Zones
By Cottage_Rose on February 10, 2013

After many years of growing mainly fussy and tender hybrid tea roses in rural zone 5, I became discouraged with their failure to do well beyond a season or two. Some seemed to never do well, no matter how well I cared for them. Some would just sit there and not grow or would quickly become naked and ugly from black spot. Reluctant to give up on growing my favorite flower, I did some online research and found information on hardy and easy-to-grow roses.

Noted by Antique Rose Emporium:
"The beautiful cup-and-saucer- shaped flowers are delicate porcelain pink. Outer petals of cream cup toward inner petals of pink that are swirled and quartered. The nearly thornless bush stands upright with light green foliage. With Iceberg as a parent, you can expect good disease resistance and prolific bloom. Its spicy scent and long stems make it a good cut flower."

I always think of this as the most "feminine" rose in my garden. Alas, the blooms never last very long, and it's not very quick to repeat. It also gets a bit leggy at times. But the captivating fragrance makes it a worthwhile addition to the garden; I always stop to admire it when in bloom.

Blooms in flushes throughout the warm months. Has often bloomed into December, here. Flowers will be smaller with successive blooms. Tolerant of partial shade. I rarely ever give supplemental water. However, while it will lose leaves in drought conditions, it is one tough shrub and always comes back as good as ever. Flower fragrance can change from light floral to one similar to insecticide Pyrethrum -- at least it does to my nose -- so I don't often cut sprays for indoors.
