A Red Rose

A red rose is a classic flower that is commonly recognized. Growing a classic red rose can be a little bit of a challenge – especially here – but it is possible, as the photo testifies. This is from the Duluth, MN Rose garden taken late this summer (September, 2014). I think it is a “Champlain” rose. It had many, prolific, blooms. In this area, some people “tip” their roses to help them endure the cold winters. But there are multiple approaches. In any case, it is essential for the plant to be hardy in USDA zone 4 .
