Ready for some really hardy roses cold zoners?

Postby Cottage Rose » Dec 12, 2007 3:53 pm

Well this is my favorite rose topic, "cane hardy" roses...meaning rose canes that don't die back in harsh winter climates. I live in rural Z5 but it might as well be Z4.
Almost every large flowering climber dies back to the snow line so in my pursuit of hardier roses I have found some wonderful gems but be forewarned aside from Rugosa's and some Old Garden Roses, most are once bloomers...BUT...like I always say, I wouldn't be without my OB roses anymore than I would be without my once blooming peonies, lilacs, iris, etc. etc.
My ultimate favorites are Alba's which reign supreme when it comes to fragrance and David Austin's most under-rated glorious beauty...Constance Spry. Huge, fluffy blossoms that are highly fragrant will knock your socks off.

One of my favorite ramblers "Lillian Gibson"
Blood red canes add winter interest.
A monster and fast grower.

Not sure what it is....

Postby DryGulch » Dec 12, 2007 9:01 pm

I'm not sure what it is other than a florist's long stem red rose. I got roses for Valentine's after my son was born and clipped the stems from all of them, clipped the stems off again and planted them in a pot in a window sill. One rooted. I have been dragging this plant from house to house as it is my son's Valentine rose. It sets up a flush of 2 or 3 long stem roses every few weeks all spring and summer. It has now been in Zone 4b for 5 years. It was more flush in zone 5, but it grows well.

Looks like a Hybrid Tea rose and how nice that you have a sentimental value attached to it. Once my grown kids settle into homes where they plan to stay for awhile I want to pass on some of my roses and peonies. I think its sweet to pass plants on through the generations.
My DIL has already has some of my lilacs, iris and daylilies.

Constance Spry is sort of neglected.. it is a bit wild but in my mind beautiful. I had Köning of Dänemark in my former garden... had to have with Dronning Dagmar. One named in Germany and one in Sweden :???:

If I ever want - read have space for - a new rambler-- please remind me of Lillian Gibson... it is a beauty

Thy
My CS is nicely fountain shaped. Its canes are very flexible yet not floppy so its perfect for training onto whatever you want. LG would be more "wild" in my experience. I have her on a trellis next to my back door....big mistake. Shes completely engulfed the trellis by year 3, you can't even see it and I have to prune her way back on the door side so I can get in the back door. Good thing shes almost thornless. I really should transplant her but shes sooo big I would have to cut her back severely and do some major digging.
Maybe next year. :???:

Louise Odier is the only repeat, large flowering climbers I've been able to grow with any success. It's cane hardy most winters and in milder areas of Z5 it would do even better
I'm not sure how it would do in Z4.
