thornless rose for Florida garden?
I'm looking for a thornless rose to put along a small pathway. Right now there are brown-from-frost firebush, butterfly weed, and cannas in that spot. One or two days with a low of 29 did them in, so I'm looking for a plant that is more pleasant to look at in the winter (i.e., green). I was thinking of Old Blush or Archduke Charles and would like to hear your opinions on them, especially you gardeners in Florida. I am open to other rose suggestions.
My druthers include:
-- no spray but still looks great and keeps its leaves
-- about 4-6 feet tall and not too lanky--looking for a nicely full bush but not too "sprawly"
-- flowers well especially in the fall through spring when we're in residence
-- I prefer double flowers; I'm not a fan of singles
-- fragrance would be nice
I know that's alot to ask from a rose! Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Here is the spot.
