Hardy Tree Rose
Last summer I bought a "Polar Joy" tree rose that was supposed to be very hardy in this area. I kind of doubted that would be true, but was I every wrong. This rose tree came through our bad winter with absolutely no dieback and without any protection at all. It sure looked better than all the rest of my roses, including the shrub roses. Right now it is in full bloom and beautiful. So, if anybody likes tree roses, this is the one to get. I bought it at Pesche's in suburban Chicago and I also saw it in the Jung catalog.
