Buck Rose favorites for the Midwest

jamlover(z4 Iowa)January 11, 2005

Which Buck roses___ your top 5__ would you recommend to others in zone 5 or colder for pleasant additions to your beds. I only have 3 and they are very young. Got them as rooted cuttings last spring and boy did they take off. Flowers right away and so nice. Really surprised me.

My favorite is "care free beauty" don't know if you have it. If not - get it. No garden should be without this rose - it is so easy and prolific.

Other than that - I have had bad luck with my Bucks so far as disease resistance and growth rates. BUT I do have to say that the flowers on Pearlie Mae and Prairie Star are beautiful.

I'd suggest: Hawkeye Belle, Earth Song, Aunt Honey, Distant Drums, and Paloma Blanca or Spanish Rhapsody. All are hardy in zone 5, and E.S., A.H. and D.D have some scent. The others have little or none, to my nose.
