Disease Resistant Roses for the Puget Sound Area

Vintage Tea RoseSeveral diseases make growing modern hybrid roses something of a chore in Western Washington. Black spot and mildew are two of the most common problems and, although they can be controlled with a preventative spray program, it may not always be appropriate or convenient to do so. There are no roses completely resistant to diseases. However, the varieties listed here have been judged by many rose growers and consulting rosarians in Western Washington to perform well in this area with the least attention and concern. In some cases a minimal spray program may be necessary.

For a complete list of roses suitable for our area, including Hybrid Teas, Shrubs, Grandifloras, Floribundas, Climbers, English Roses, and Old Garden Roses, click here.
