Look up books that have pictures of these roses. If you look you will see they dont always agree on hardiness. But its good to read what they have said in order to have greater insight into what you choose. Most of these people experienced these roses in areas of the world other than yours.

ROSE PHOTO BOOKS

The prescence of a book on this list does not indicate that I agree with the methods or information provided by the author. Its just that they have a picture of the rose in question on the page indicated. These books were chosen either because they were already in my library, a picture was included that I'd had some difficulty finding, or because I try to pick as diverse books as possible not knowing what will be easily available to you where you are. Each book has a little blurb by me at the end that you might take as a short review.
