I grow roses in Zone 5 Milwaukee, Wisconsin and a Zone 3/4, 8500 ft. altitude mountain garden in Winter Park, Colorado; successful winterization is my nemesis!
I was bitten by the Floribunda Bug in 2015 - when a Queen Elizabeth Body Bag caught my eye - and have now diversified to grow the following (non-body-bags):
In Zone 5 - Aloha Climber, Gene Boerner, Savoy Hotel, Souvenir du Docteur Jamain and Taboo.
In Zone 3/4 - Austrian Copper, Harison’s Yellow, Morden Blush, Prairie Sunrise, Queen Mary 2, Roberta Bondar, SDJ, and Taboo.
Ideas other than Queen Elizabeth for a lighter pink and/or dark red rose hedge/climber/rambler of minimum 6 feet (Z5, many-petaled, fragrant roses with strong rebloom) are always welcome.
May you always have rich compost under your nails, breathe daily the seductive fragrance of a hybrid tea, and may Japanese Beetles tremble at the sight of you!
