Zone 6 mini roses in zone 5, what to do???
Hi everyone, I am new to this forum. I'm one of the many nor'east fanatics that ordered lots of roses. Over 100. still waiting for them (next week....) Here's the issue: I'm in zone 5, and believe that some of the roses I ordered are zone 6 -- julie link, iced tea, hope and joy, ring of fire, to name a few. The nor'east website doesn't list these as zone 6, but their pamphlet that comes w/ the roses, does. I've done some internet searches, and sure enough, zone 6....
So what should I do to protect these roses in the winter? Do I need to take the plants in? Or am I wrong and are all mini roses hardy enough for my zone? Any info would be greatly appreciated!!!
