I am a novice w/ roses and would like to try one of the Austin English roses. But would like to know--are they fussy? Would they survive in heat and humidity (Atlanta area)? Extra care needed? Have unreliable back Sad !! I these roses are not a good choice, I'd appreciate a suggestion for a bright pink shrub rose no more than 5'. Thanks!

There is a great rose society in Atlanta! I would contact them for more information on what roses do well there. Not all Austin's preform the same so knowing what works in your area would be helpful

Here's a link to their contact page

If you are hunting for a great pink rose that makes a good looking shrub, Belinda's Dream is the rose you want. With you being a "novice" with roses, there a few things you need to know right away. When a nursery says the rose they are selling is "own root", you can figure 4 to 5 years before the bush reach's full maturity. Most roses grafted onto an understock (Dr Huey, Multiflora or Fortuniana) will reach maturity by their 3rd year. Over here in N.E. GA., I have a decent size garden and I have rose grafted onto all 3 root stocks and own root. Everything grows great in upper GA. Most of my roses come from K&M Nursery but I also have roses from Edmunds Roses, Palatine Roses, Regan's Nursery and a few from my local Lowe's.
It's a rose!!! It has nothing to do with life and death.
