Will Lady Banks survive in Cape Canaveral, Florida (approximately 3 blocks from beach) or is salt in soil and air an issue? (Zone 9) Thanks, Betty

The salt could be an issue if it is heavily in the soils and air but Lady Banks is usually a pretty tough rose in all the varieties. I would certainly give her a try as she is such a beautiful rose. You may also want to look at some of the Rugosa roses, some folks call them Beach Roses because they are very salt tolerant. Such as ones named Fire N Spice or Henry Hudson.
