Roses in N Central Texas

11 years ago

I know this is a long shot since so many of you are in much cooler, better soiled climates, BUT I would like to hear from those who are north of the hill country in central Texas.

More particularly Brown, Eastland, Comanche and Callahan counties. Which roses do the best for you....don't mention Belinda's Dream. I planted her at the cemetery where my parents are buried, at the corner of a building, and she has survived!! and bloomed. I would like to find another rose that will do as well. My soil is sandy and the water has a very high sodium content (360 ppm), which kills the leaves, and very LOW magnesium/calcium (like 1 each). Any experiences would be appreciated.
