Find your zone
Growing great roses begins with knowing what garden zone you live in. Hardiness matters and planting the right rose for your zone is essential.
Global warming is changing garden zone data. In Massachusetts what used to be Zone 5 is slowly verging into 6. Still, our winters can be very harsh.
Antique Rose Emporium in Texas carries Extra Cold Hardy varieties and just about everything in between. Zones are clearly listed on every rose displayed.
Whether you shop local or order hard-to-find roses by mail, knowing your zone is the key to success.
