Lovely Garden Question Of The Week - Southern Roses
QUESTION: “Where summers are hot and humid, is it wise to plant roses where they get full sun?” — Donald Wyman, Alabama
ANSWER: Even in hot climates, roses need eight hours of full sunlight a day to thrive. However, partial shade, especially in the mid or late afternoon, may be a wiser choice for most Southern roses. Remember to always buy varieties that are best suited to your climate.
