2Anyone can grow roses- and grow them almost anywhere. The number of types and varieties is so vast that there are roses to suit all tastes and climates.

Not all roses are universally adaptable. Some that thrive in cold climates are not suitable for warmer regions; particularly those which are moist and subtropical. On the other hand, varieties bred to withstand very low temperatures will not grow well where winters are frost free. Fortunately, the great majority of bush and climbing roses are reliable in most regions of Australia and New Zealand. When there is any doubt about the reliability of certain kinds, consult local authorities such as nurserymen, botanical gardens, park superintendents, experienced rosarians, the Department of Agriculture in your area, or your nearest National Rose Society
