                                         in our Desert Climate
                                           Updated January 2006

This newly updated list of recommended roses includes varieties grown by members of the Desert Rose
Society that do well in our hot, dry climate. It is not by any means meant to be exhaustive, as there are
many other roses that can do well here. It should be noted that there are many factors that influence how a
rose performs in a given setting, including climate (and microclimates can vary even within a garden),
feeding, water, sunlight, competition from other plants/trees, etc.). The inclusion of a variety on this list
does not necessarily imply that it is totally disease-resistant; some of these roses are prone to powdery
mildew during the cooler months.

Other more general sources of information on individual varieties may be found in/at the following
publications/web sites: ARS Handbook for Selecting Roses, Combined Rose List, Modern Roses 11,,,
