No-Fuss Roses for Cold Zones

By Cottage_Rose
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.

As a fellow rose lover, thank you for encouraging colder and norther gardeners to grow roses! Everyone needs a few in their gardens, after all Green Grin!

You also have great general rose growing information for everyone.

Great article!

Your roses are gorgeous, BTW!

This past summer I found Constance Spry on the north side of the lilac hedge [ my sinuses don`t appreciate them ]. I forgot about her, holding my nose while running past the lilacs to get the mail. What a wonderful surprise. I`ll still hold my nose, but now I WILL STOP AND SMELL THE ROSE ! Lovey dubby
