17 Heat Tolerant Roses That Thrive in Warm Climates (2024)

Contents

If you love roses and live in a hot climate, you might struggle to keep them blooming in intense heat. Roses love sunshine, but they tend to struggle when temperatures rise above 85℉. Many of us are experiencing much hotter summers than we’re used to, making the need for heat-tolerant roses increase, even in some northern climates.

Roses experiencing heat stress may experience leaf scorch, wilting, and leaf loss. Blooms will be smaller as the rose tries to conserve its energy. In fact, roses can even go into heat-induced dormancy and stop producing new growth at all, similar to their period of winter dormancy in cold climates.

There are some steps you can take to mitigate the effects of heat stress. Some afternoon shade protects against the harshest rays of the sun. Mulch cools the soil and keeps moisture in. Frequent monitoring of dry soil and watering as needed will help combat desiccation. Avoid planting roses in containers, as they won’t have the protection of cooler, deep inground soil.

While you can provide extra care for roses to get them through the heat, planting varieties that have more defense mechanisms to handle high heat is your best bet for a beautiful hot climate garden. Here’s a list of tough roses that will shine through the most sweltering summer days!

‘Dainty Bess’ is top 5 on my current wishlist. She has such a unique look, with large, waved open blooms, and striking maroon stamens.

‘Dainty Bess’ received the Royal National Rose Society Gold Medal in 1925. Popular for nearly a century, this sturdy rose used to be widely grown but has since taken a backseat to the heavily-marketed Knock Out series.

The petals of ‘Dainty Bess’ are pale pink and delicate looking, but don’t let the name and appearance deter you. ‘Dainty Bess’ is a survivor! This rose will tolerate soaring summer temperatures, humidity, and drought. Cut frequently for lovely bouquets with a wildflower scent.

‘Peggy’ is a robust climbing rose with nearly thornless canes (though you will find some prickles on the back of the leaves!). It blooms heavily in spring with sprays of double magenta flowers, followed by occasional smaller flushes through fall.

If you have a large wall or arbor to cover, this rose would be an excellent option. It grows rapidly, blooms abundantly, and thrives in heat and humidity. ‘Peggy Martin’ can survive a hurricane, and it can survive the skills of the most inexperienced gardener.

‘Twilight Zone’ is a moody deep plum that looks even more intense in the shade. The dark green foliage provides a backdrop for large and velvety purple blooms. ‘Twilight Zone’ flowers in flushes all season.

‘Twilight Zone’ is a trooper in warm climates but will need protection from hot afternoon sun. If there’s no tree cover, consider putting up a shade cloth on the hottest days.

‘Le Petit Prince’ is a lavender floribunda with good bloom power and to-die-for fragrance. It makes a popular cutting flower because no one can resist bringing the citrusy-anise scented blooms inside.

Named for the beloved French children’s novel, this Little Prince is appropriately special. A stunning, delicate lavender in the cold, it appears slightly pink in the heat. Either way, the attractive coloration and scent combined make for a covetable rose.

‘Sweet Mademoiselle’ is a surefire winner for hot climates. It is adapted to a wide variety of zones but is a real lifesaver in areas where other roses just can’t handle the blazing sun. Its true-pink-to-peach color fades slightly paler in the heat.

‘Mademoiselle’ has large, cupped blooms on a healthy midsize shrub. This rose won the American Rose Society’s Award for Fragrance. It has a strong, sweet fruity scent that wafts through the garden.

At only 3 feet tall, ‘Frida’ is a good candidate for containers. It also makes a great edge for pathways if you plant several in a row. She appreciates full sun and will glow with warmth in your garden.

This rose has a light fruity fragrance that isn’t overwhelming but still lovely. She’s very hardy and can stand up to all kinds of abuse and pests. This rose is a steady little workhorse with bombshell looks.

Final Thoughts
