I am wondering if you all could recommend roses, based on your personal experience, matching the following characteristics:
1) High disease resistance against blackspots, rust and mildews.
2) Does well with 4-5 hrs of sunlight.
3) Location: North-facing.
4) Zone: 10a-10b
5) Neighborhood microclimate: windy/slight foggy morning with warm sunny noon until evening.
6) Probably do well in the large container.
I just moved two of my roses, Mister Lincoln and Princess Alexandra of Kent, to the backyard this morning because I reached the decision that they will do better under 6+ hours of sunlight with less wind and fog. Yup, San Francisco microclimate is odd like that. While it's windy and foggy in the front side of the house, the backyard is less windy and foggy and warmer, go figure. The reason I moved the roses because although the roses are growing fine and even bloomed once, they are a magnet for diseases. I don't want to be frequently spraying them when the disease trigger is the microclimatic condition.
The following are the roses, planted in the same north-facing location, that are doing well so far:
1) The Poet's Wife.
2) Claire Austin ( for which, I will be creating a separate thread to discuss the budding question).
3) Ebb Tide
4) Lady of the Shalott
