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.

Noted by Antique Rose Emporium:
"This old Bourbon is a hardy rose, bearing very full, medium-sized, camellia-shaped blooms in a bright, light rose or deep pink shade. The plant is vigorous and large, making it suitable for shrub use or for training on pillars or posts, as suggested by Gertrude Jekyll. The fragrance of ‘Louise Odier’ is delightful."
