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.

Introduced in 2000 by David Austin Roses to commemorate the 60th birthday of renowned flautist James Galway. A large vigorous shrub which can also be trained as a climber. The blooms are mid pink, paler at the edges of the blooms and have a crimped or pleated appearance. It has a medium old rose fragrance.
