Roses often get a bad rap as being too fussy, dainty and demanding. But during the past few decades, breeders have created new disease-resistant varieties with improved cold and heat tolerance, repeat blooms and minimal maintenance requirements.

In fact, most new roses don’t require deadheading and need only to be cut back by a third during spring cleanups for best bloom.

Unfortunately, many people believe roses should perform without any care whatsoever, which isn’t realistic. “Every plant needs a little bit of maintenance,” says Jacques Ferare, rose program manager with . “There’s no such thing as a maintenance-free plant. Even perennials and shrubs may need to be sheared back in the spring to look their best.”

The secret to adding the timeless appeal of roses to your landscape is not really a secret: Choose the right plant for the right place, says Ferare. Every rose does not perform the same in every climate; select those that thrive in your region by consulting a local nursery, your area’s Cooperative Extension Service or the

To ensure success with roses, plants should receive at least six hours of sun per day. “Some roses do okay in shade, but they won’t have the flower power,” says Ferare. Avoid the common mistake of planting roses too close together, which makes them more vulnerable to disease. For heavy soils, dig a hole larger than needed and work organic material into the soil over a large planting area, not just in a small hole. Mulch heavily, and water deeply occasionally during dry periods.

Roses are equally at home in formal, cottage, Mediterranean or urban garden settings. They’re versatile plants that offer incomparable beauty as accents, in borders, en masse, on hillsides and in planters.

These hardy new varieties and old standbys will add color, depth and charm to your planting plans:
