Roses are too delicate for me...I have luck with hardier plants. I have a lot of exotics that are suppose to be annuals in my area, but they've become perennials (like Canna & Pineapple Lily), plus I have a lot of shade
Cool! I don't have much shade so my roses can become a little tricky mid-summer, unfortunately. I have a lot of a harder time with exotics but I think that's just because of my lack of shade. I have few shade trees.
