Favorite Roses for Midwest (Particularly Chicago)
My SO's mom wants to try some roses next spring. So for Christmas, I'm thinking of giving her a gift certificate to one of the better on-line rose vendors.
Even so, there are thousands of varieties of roses out there, and I would like to also give her a list of recommendations for the best roses, regular or mini, for the Midwest and Chicagoland. Since she's new to roses and doesn't spray her garden, I'm looking for ones that are hardy, fragrant and disease resistant (and pretty too!).
Any input on your favorites rose varieties for the Midwest would be greatly appreciated. Thanks & Happy Holidays.
