I live in Southern Illinois. These are three varieties of Roses that grow well where I live: Tea Rose bushes, the Texas Rose, and Long Stemmed Rose. Tea rose bushes produce small pink roses. The Texas Rose is yellow. Also, the long-stemmed rose comes in a variety of colors. Roses need direct morning sunlight but indirect afternoon sunlight. Roses also need water but not enough to soak them. Roses need to be trimmed two-three times per year. They need to be covered to protect them from frost and snow. Some people use bug preventer so that they will thrive and bloom. Aphids and Japanese beetles are the main enemies of roses here in Southern Illinois. Roses are the most recognizable flowers ever known to man. There are over three hundred species of roses. My Mom had black and white roses at her wedding. I love roses.
