hmmm Its a UK grown rose has reddish foilage(new growth)turning dark green and florist type blooms& are great for cutting.also great tub plants.In running a search for purchaseing....I only came up with British or England.Rumwood nurserys seems to carry the most& that was useing rosefinder search engine.It mentions nothing about desease restance.

These we're ones shown on rosefinder

http://www.rosefinder.com/climbpatio.htm

I liked Laura Ford
I couldn't find any parentage on any of the ones listed..so am thinking these are not availeable in the US.If you are wanting more info still....I can snail mail my garden buddy in Oxford.not much info online& she may be able to gleam more info over there.I know at one time she use to volenteer in the Chelsee Gardens& assits with the huge garden show they do there (besides selling luggage& leather products)


I hope you get no more snow also.Also curious...what roses you go up there?do you grow the sub zero roses?

I purchased two of them the other day. I just needed the info about planting and caring for them. First time i've ever bought them.

thanks.

Rugosas and floribundas seem to be the only roses that will come back the following year, the rest die. My sub-zero rose died as well. lol It reaches -40*C here in the winter.

Thats too cold for my southern a$$,but I might welcome -20 when we hit the triple digits,sometimes my AC is just not cold enough.I left Indpls cause hated the winter.I couldn't even warm up enough in the summer...lol Hated snow& snow trucks


most roses...
dig hole 1 1/2 ft wide 2 ft deep ammend the soil removed.I use cow manure/peat moss sometimes saw dust if any being cut. I keep watered daily at least 2 weeks then will fertilize unless comes in pot not bareroot.

For me it seems the ones bought bareroot start slower than bought in pot...with the acception of Our Lady of guadalupe.she's growing same pace as contanier ones,shes a floribunda she gets total full sun.not a bit a shade (well maybe the grass I weeded from her roots yeasterday)

Thought.Raised beds soil warms faster& will drain faster as well

I have since learned that Patio roses fall under the miniature category, no more confusion. Thanks gals.

I've seen them grown as groundcover.So they don't HAVE to climb.Our Lowes don't even carry them.When I bought my tree topiary iceburg,I wanted a white rose to grow on ground with it.Would be nice of the stores would carry those.But I gave myself a rule.If it don't smell....it don't get bought.period.It's to keep self from having over 100 roses again.

How do you care for patio roses during the winter? Mine died off on me this year. Must have done something wrong. Had it in a pot in a cold greenhouse overwinter.

You have to leave it in the ground and cover it up fully with mulch and hay. I did get some die back. Floribundas and rugosas are the hardiest it seems.

Might be better off in a cool garage or basement. Our winters are too cold to overwinter anything in pots. I have a friend who digs a hole in fall puts her dwarf spruce in it and redigs and repots it in spring.

You might be right, I'll have to look for a cool and dark place for my pots.
