No-Fuss Roses for Cold ZonesNo-Fuss Roses for Cold Zones
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.

I have found this rose to be very heat tolerant. It blooms through months of temps of high 90s and low 100s without pause. It is not a fussy rose and can be pruned to a smaller size than shown in my photo of the plant.

It does get some blackspot when the conditions are right, but not enough to cause the plant to defoliate in my climate.

My plant is budded and I don't know how it would perform own root.
