What roses are good in Zone 3 to 4 in upper Michigan with loam soil? I have problems growing them, but love cabbage roses, no luck with them though. I do have two that have survived our winters, tons of snow. What do you suggest?

Hello Jennine. I am in zone 5. However I believe any of the Dr. Griffith Buck roses would do just fine. Many of the floribunda roses or grandiflora roses seem to do better in colder climates than the hybrid tea roses. I love Distant Drums and she is a Buck rosebush. Check also with a local rose society to see what they recommend. You can locate one through the American Rose Society website at Feel free to visit my website as well.
