Frost-resistant roses for wintering without shelter in the northern regions

All gardeners know that in spring and summer the garden is full of bright colors and colors, but with the arrival of cold weather everything changes - snow and dirt appear in the garden, and bright colors gradually change to gray and brown dull colors. However, do not despair. Today we want to tell you aboutfrost-resistant varieties of roses for wintering without shelter.

Types and classification of winter-resistant roses

There are three types of roses that can survive the winter even in the most northern regions:

  • upright wintering roses that require no maintenance and can withstand the harshest winter;
  • roses, wintering in an upright position, which can freeze slightly without additional care;
  • varieties that can freeze in the winter. These roses can not survive the winter in an upright position, so they need to bend and close with snow.

Park roses bred from wild rosehips have the highest frost resistance.For example, Canadian varieties of roses can winter in the northernmost regions at a temperature of 45 degrees below zero.
