Need help narrowing rose wishlist

3 years ago
last modified: 3 years ago

Hey y’all! I’m planning on preparing a new rose bed this fall and need some help narrowing my wishlist. I’m new to rose gardening since this past fall, so my experience is limited. This is what I’m looking for in a rose:

Very Fragrant, Heat Tolerant, Long Vase Life, Excellent Disease Resistance, Low/Med Height, Few Thorns, Excellent Repeat Bloom

I‘m currently sticking to a no-spray method and plan to continue on that track. I am zone8a hot and humid. Fragrance, disease resistance, and compact growth are most important.

Here are the roses I’ve selected that should meet most of these requirements. I need help narrowing this list. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

WISHLIST:

Bolero

Desdemona

PJPII

Seafoam

Honey Bouquet

Molineux

The Poet’s Wife

Dark Desire

Distant Drums

This is the rose that started my addiction (St Cecilia).
