QUESTION: Do these roses work for zone 6b-7a in SE Tennessee (Chattanooga)?
I have heard that the Eden roses are very slow to perform in certain areas...and mine have not done much so far in 2 years.
I've admired the Eden rose immensely in photos and would like some advice on how to beef them up a bit!
Some of my other roses have gone "gangbusters" such as Caldwell Pink and Cecile Brunner....even Clotilde Soupert has done very well...but Eden has not.....
ANSWER: Hi Scott! The Eden rose doesn't do well in cold climate zones.
Here is Southern California they do beautifully.
This is what I do when a rose doesn't perform well after 2 years.
I get rid of it. With so many great rose varieties to choose from, why fuss over a rose that won't bloom.
I don't know how to make the Eden rose bloom better, but you could check out my page about caring for roses.
