Top 10 Reblooming Roses

My Favorite Reblooming Roses

When it comes to roses, I'm all about no fuss, no muss. I'm a lazy gardener that likes all the blooms and fragrance without all the work. So what could be better than easy-to-grow rose bushes that bloom again and again?

Top 10 Reblooming Roses

This English Rose bred by David Austin was a staple in my Virginia garden and one of the most popular David Austin varieties. The double pink cup-shaped blooms are medium sized, fragrant, and very showy. The bush itself has nice foliage and a great rounded growth habit.

#6 - New Dawn

Top 10 Reblooming Roses

Color - Light Pink Flowers

Hardiness - Zones 5 to 9

Bloom Time - Mid Spring repeating in Summer

One of the best climbing roses ever in my opinion. The New Dawn rose is an excellent climber/rambler making it my top choice for arbors and very large, strong fences. In mid Spring, it will be covered with double pink flowers that fade to a lighter pink over a few weeks. The flowers are quite fragrant. Dark green foliage is very resistant to powdery mildew, rust and black spot. New Dawn is simply stunning and so easy to care for. Perfect for pink weddings too!

#7 - Iceberg

Color - White

Bloom Time - Late Spring through Mid Fall

Hardiness - Zones 4 to 9a

Height - 3 feet

This easy-to-grow rose is legendary for its reblooming characteristics. It manages to cover itself in white blooms for the entire summer, blooming again and again and again. The clusters of white flowers have a sweet wedding honey fragrance with blooms measuring about 3" in diameter. It also has a great round mounding habit which makes it easy to control and easy to pair with other roses in a garden.

#8 - Carefree Beauty

Bloom Color: Medium Pink

Size: 5 - 6 ft. tall

Hardiness: Zones 5-10

Bloom Time: Repeatedly starting Early Summer

Introduced in 1977 by rose hybridizer Griffith Buck, the Carefree Beauty really is carefree. This shrub rose is very disease resistant. Starting in early summer, it is covered with masses of large, fragrant medium pink blooms. Its ability to repeat bloom makes it a surefire way to add color to your garden all summer long.

#9 - William Baffin

Color - Pink

Height - 8 to 10 feet

Hardiness - Zones 3 - 9

Bloom Time - Starts Early Summer

THE best reblooming rose choice for Northern gardeners. This bright pink beauty will bloom from early summer right up until the first frost. William Baffin roses are hardy, disease resistant, and vigorous growers. They feature a glossy light green foliage and they can be trained to cover picket fences or arbors (see photo below). The only drawback of this rose (in my opinion) is that it doesn't have much in the way of fragrance unlike most of my other reblooming selections.

It is also easy to find and can be purchased at Nature Hills Nursery.
