Growing roses in Florida garden is somehow challenging due to our hot and humid weather in the summer. All of my three rose bushes suffer black spots from time to time. Although I tried to use the rose spray to control them, they always manage to come back. Fortunately they seem have not affected the roses' blooming yet.
I learned that there are two kinds of rootstocks are excellent for Florida's climate: Fortuniana and Dr. Hughey. So, when I saw Home Depot has Fortuniana rootstock roses for sale, I grabbed one right away.
I love this rose especially for its bicolor, creamy-white and red to crimson. Is it gorgeous?!
