I have a few that are doing good. I have 4 acre of property and putting together a rose garden. After 3 years I have so far survival

Queen Elizabeth
2 Red mini unknown that was on the property
Green mini rose bush-(transplant from my old property 8 yrs old)
Sunny Knockout
Fairy rose (pink of course)

Looking for suggestions especially in the Pittsburgh, Pa area or (other cold regions) what is a good winter survival rose. I like peach more orange than pink, yellow and white. The only color I really am not fond of is Red.

Thank you for your suggestions.

Julia Child is a lovely yellow one that has been very winter hardy and fairly disease resistant for me. Tuscan Sun is a good orange blend one too. Check out the roses bred by Griffith Buck because he worked a lot on cold hardiness. He also bred some real beauties too!

You may want to check out the Renziehausen Rose Garden in McKeesport. Also, have a chat with one of the Consulting Rosarians in the area.

Marchesa Boccella is a very nice old garden rose. Pink flowers, fragrant, hardy, blooms all season.
