Roses for Zone 5 sometimes 6

16 years ago

Anyone have any personal experience with roses that do well in zone 5 (sometimes 6 with our last mild winters)? How long have you been growing them, etc.?

I am looking for climbers and shrub roses; preferably something I won't have to be spraying or worrying about bugs damaging all the time.

I have The Fairy, Bonica and Carpet Rose now that do well without much attention. I am getting to be a lazy gardener. (GRIN) My old Blaze rose that was here when we moved to this place in 1997 has about succumbed to that rose disease where the leaves ball up, etc. Don't remember what it is called. I think that is what happened to it.
