Roses are some of the most reliable performers in the Spokane plant world. Honestly, their reputation for being hard to grow is undeserved. They love our low humidity and sunny days. Of course some varieties do better in morning sun than late afternoon and some may be need more winter protection than others but all things considered, growing beautiful roses here is a snap! We have dozens of varieties to choose from, ranging from ground cover roses to tall shrubs.
