Which roses do best in the heat?
My third flush has been kind of a mixed bag. When a bloom opens, I've had to catch it before the heat and sun get to it. I have had some pretty blooms, but they're not staying that way very long. From my observation, it does seem like Tiffany, Peace, Tropicana and a couple of others are holding up fairly well in the heat. When we have a period of decent summer weather, at some point we do pay for those unusually nice days with a heat wave, happens every time! For the most part I try to plant roses that are heat tolerant and I do know that every summer there will be a period when the roses don't look so great. The past few days the temps have been in the high 90's, probably hovering around 100 degrees at times.
Which varieties handle the heat and humidity the best? Any Class!
