I keep reading these lengthy posts where someone has asked for suggestions and everybody offers his/her favorites regardless of zone and climate and then the old-timers chime in to explain why half the suggestions won't work.
I don't want to spoil the fun and I know we all want to be helpful and we all love our favorites, but few roses do well everywhere. I'm not sure how helpful it is to recommend a rose that does well in zone 7 to someone asking for suggestions in zone 5. Adding, "but I don't know if it will work for you," isn't helpful, either. Unless you know for certain it will do well--ie, you once grew it in zone 5 yourself or you researched it before you suggested it--it might be best to stand down and leave the field to those who can make viable suggestions. Newbies especially need minimal confusion and maximum success.
