Reliable Roses for Every Climate
Three extraordinary roses that grow well virtually anywhere in the United States

'Home Run'. A modern shrub that's extremely disease-resistant. It has a striking single dark red flower, with a yellow center.

'New Dawn'. A light pink, fragrant climber that can romp over large structures. Almost indestructible--a great rose!

Rosa glauca. A species rose that grows up to 10 feet tall, with arching red canes, blue-green leaves, pretty pink flowers, and hips as an autumn bonus.

These beautiful, no-fuss roses thrive in all but the hottest and coldest areas of the country

'CécileBrunner'. A polyantha rose, available in shrub or climber form. It is disease-resistant, easy to grow, and beautiful, with sprays of shell-pink, fragrant "buttonhole" blooms.

'Julia Child'. A floribunda rose that's phenomenal from Texas to California to New York. It has buttery yellow blooms with a spicy fragrance on a well-behaved, disease-resistant 3 1/2-foot shrub.

'Madame Hardy'. A damask rose, white with a green eye, and perfume to die for.

Rosa primula. A species rose that makes a lovely garden plant, about 4 to 7 feet, with fragrant, light green leaflets. It is a very early blooming shrub with yellow, very fragrant blossoms.

'The McCartney Rose'. A vigorous, pink, fragrant hybrid tea that was tested under low-care conditions.
