Growing Great Roses
Recommended Rose for Southeastern Wisconsin
There are also major groups or series of roses that are hardy for our Zone 5 climate.  These include:
the Dr. Griffith Buck roses
the Canadian Explorer roses
the Parkland series
the Pavement series
the Bill Radler roses
some of the Earthkind Rose group
as well as the species roses and members of the roses classed as Old Garden Roses.

The membership of the GMRS was polled to learn their recommendations for disease resistant, winter hardy roses varieties.  Obviously, this list is not comprehensive and reflects the personal opinions of those responding to the question.  Individual differences in microclimate and gardening practices must be taken into consideration.
