January 2008
American Rose;Jan/Feb2008, Vol. 39 Issue 11, p13
The article presents information on the various locations for planting roses. Some of the newer shrub roses can be planted along driveways or other areas in full view of those who pass by. In colder regions of the U.S., winter protection can usually be done in a tasteful manner that does not detract much from the winter landscape. In warmer regions, gardeners can plant standard tree roses in almost any location without worrying about their winter protection.
