In his garden in Tyler, Texas, Mark Chamblee, of Chamblee's Rose Nursery, grows 'Belinda's Dream', 'Marie Daly', 'Marie Pavie', 'Livin' Easy', 'Easy Going', 'Knockout', and 'Mermaid'. Mark likes these varieties because "they have great hardiness and disease resistance, they are low maintenance and are very free blooming."
