I grow a very hardy rose, Theresa Bugnet, in a large planter at the front of my house just to one side of my porch. The rose is so hardy that, unlike many other roses, it’s able to survive our winters in a planter.
This rose produces beautiful blooms with a heavenly scent several times each season and since it’s of the rugosa family it doesn’t have many pests and it’s affected by powdery mildew very often either. In fact this rose hates pesticides and chemicals so along with it’s built in resistance to disease this makes it very easy to care for in the garden.
