My name is Nancy,
I recently moved to Arkansas from OHIO. It is much hotter here and very humid. I have no shade whatsoever. I would like to plant roses. I was wondering if there were any specifics that will do well in the high heat and humidity? Also some of my flowers are getting holes in them, I'm thinking maybe insects? but I dont know what to use on them. thank you

Hi Nancy,

Sorry nobody ever responsed in the three years since this was posted...

There are many roses designated as "Earth-Kind" roses which have been extensively tested for disease-resistance, heat tolerance, etc. Here's a link to their site, which also lists the cultivars selected for the program.
