Does anyone grow Carefree Sunshine in the SF Bay Area? I have a space in a bed that is about 4 ft by 5 ft, and I am looking for a rose that is full, and about 4-6 ft tall to put in it. Gets morning and mid day sun. Other suggestions? A lighter color is needed, and most important is disease resistance - I don't spray.
I am asking because HMF says the zone for this CS is 6b-8b, which seems an awfully narrow range to me (its an Austin, so perhaps that is correct - only will grow in England!), and I was hoping someone grows it around here, where we are zone 9 with wet winters and dry warm summers. Thanks so much for your help!
