I live very close to San Jose, CA which is 60 miles south of San Francisco.

My husband and I own a very small lot, (6000 sq ft). Only area suitable is the long side yard.

I have about 65 rose planted in the ground.


My obsession with roses started when I fell in love with Austin Roses, but soon found out that they are not necessarily the best choice for my climate, (too hungry, too thirsty and too big). Eventually, they will be replaced.
