I read that hardy geranium -- this is Rozanne -- does not do well in the humid south. I am hopeful that this is not true for my yard because it is an awesome plant to have! The Iceberg rose above is my best repeat bloomer. It has been fairly disease resistant and during the very hot months I spray neem oil on the new blooms to keep the thrips away. I have eight of these, including one climbing -- see the picture of the copper trellis my father built -- and would recommend this rose for anyone in Zone 9 as long as it gets six full hours of sun, preferably morning.
I am an avid gardener who lives in Friendswood, Texas. I enjoy anything having to do with plants -- especially natives from my region in Texas, Zone 9 -- and love the art of garden design. I still have a lot to learn but am loving the process of getting there!
