If you can pull weeds, you can grow these roses. A product of extensive testing by the Houston Rose Society and Texas A&M ArgiLife Extension, these roses received no chemical sprays, fertilizer, pruning, or deadheading and made fantastic beautiful landscape plants despite reductions in supplemental irrigation of up to 70% over the course of four years. In short, they are bulletproof and many are suitable for the Washington, D.C., area. Come learn how these beauties can make your gardening experience a lot easier.
