The Drift series are good ones and so is the OSO Easy series. I have 2 OSO Easy Paprika and they will bloom nonstop for most of the season if I keep up with deadheading.

What zone are you in? That will help with suggestions also. Smiling

I have had good luck with Drift Coral. But thinking about the Oso easy series. Can't figure out which would be best.

For me Drift roses are bushy but more spreading than upright. What climate are you living in?

I am in Texas about 90 miles north west of Houston, so it is hot and humid. winters can vary from nothing to an ice storm or two, but really cold weather generally doesn't last more than a few days at a time. The area will be a focal point for viewing from the patio, so nice looking form is important. Full sun. I don't want anything higher than 2 1/2 feet high and the same width.

I think any of the Kordes Veranda roses would be suitable.
I have Cream Veranda aka Garden of Roses - love it - check out the photos in the plant database.
