Roses enjoy being Americans’ favorite landscape plants, but they have a reputation for being high maintenance. Many varieties require a lot of work to keep them disease and insect-free, though there have been some incredible breeding breakthroughs in landscape roses.

Modern varieties feature attractive qualities for busy, modern gardeners, including self-cleaning, hardiness in cooler climates, and drought and disease resistance. Selecting less fussy, low-maintenance roses when choosing a rose bush for your garden can be difficult if you are a novice.

Let’s look at some of the easiest roses to grow in any garden where the soil is well-drained:
