Any Canadians Willing to Give Rose-Growing Advice?
So, here's the background. I was on these forums a few years ago when I lived in Southern Ontario. I enjoyed all the DA roses I could wish for, and then some! I've since moved to a more northerly place, my climate zone has been cut in half, and I'm feeling a little sad about my rose-growing options.
On the up-side, my new yard is a blank slate. Today, on a whim, I picked up a bagged Chrysler Imperial. It is touted as "winter-proof" but I'm skeptical. Any advice? And any suggestions for roses that will do well in Alberta? I already have 5 Hansa roses given to me, so I think that's enough of that variety.
I must admit I am feeling a little whiney about my options. It's hard to adjust to Hansa after growing teas and DAs. Just saying. So any encouragement would be great. Thanks!
