I recently relocated to Colorado, specifically Georgetown. Will roses grow in Georgetown? If yes, what kind of roses?
Clear Creek County Colorado
Welcome to Clear Creek County and thanks for your inquiry! Yes -- some varieties of roses will grow at 8,500+'. We suggest:
- Wood's Rose (Rosa woodsii) -- a native rose
- 'Harison's Yellow' Rose (Rosa harisonii) -- not technically a "native" plant, but brought in by early mining families and does very well here.
