|Selecting Hardy Roses for Northern Climates|
|Post Date:||September 11, 2019|
Provides info for home gardeners and garden center personnel that will enable them to select roses that are hardy enough to survive winters in USDA Plant Hardiness zones 2, 3 and 4 and need little long-term maintenance. Includes 3 lists: (1) roses that are low maintenance due to their hardiness and disease resistance; (2) roses that may not be entirely hardy, may need some protection, and are susceptible to disease and need applications of fungicide, and (3) wild roses that can adapt to low-maintenance landscapes. Also has lists of mail order sources for shrub roses and public rose gardens in Iowa, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin.
Gives class, flower color/type, information on blooming frequency, plant size and habit, hardiness zone adaptation and miscellaneous comments for each of the more that 100 cultivars and species included in the lists.
