2024 Selections

Abraham Lincoln is quoted as saying “We can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses.” I would like to rejoice. Growing roses in Wyoming might seem a daunting challenge that few want to accept. However, I wish more would take the cahallenge and when you have the right information and knowledge of how to succeed, you can be succesful in your gardening endevors.

Growing up in the Rose City of Wyoming, I have always loved roses. In fact at one point of my  horticulture career, I was the Parks Manager for the Town of Lovell and was the steward of the roses growing in the town parks. What a challenge! However, changing some of the daily and seasonal care practices I was able to help those roses grow and survive in Wyoming. It wasn’t easy, but my crew and I did it. Lovell was once again blooming in roses.

Roses can grow and flurish in Wyoming, you just have to take certain steps to help them survive.

You can find links to my YouTube videos on Roses and also Rose care sheets in our web sites Learning Center.

Tree Roses

Tree Roses are NOT hardy in Wyoming and must be protected in order for them to survive the winter and into the next year. They can be planted in the ground but for best results, they should be planted in large pots or planters. Those planters can then be brought into an insulated, preferably a heated garage or out-building, where the ambiant winter temps stays above 20 degrees F but below 45 degrees F. They are a great accent addition to any garden but precautions must be taken to ensure their survivability.
