 Is anyone familiar with a list of roses based solely on disease
 We have a hot and humid climate and I don't spray anything except a
little RoundUp.

 If a rose needs more maintenance than a purple coneflower, I don't
want it. <VBG>

 We currently have;
 Iceberg - outstanding disease resistance
 an unnamed pink from a friend - has a grandiflora growth/bloom habit.
beautiful, large hybrid tea to cup shaped flower, wonderful scent,
decent disease resistance,  blooms all season, own roots
 an unnamed maroon red from another friend - sort of a short climber
with large hybrid tea flowers, great scent, blooms all season, great
disease resistance, own roots
 Scentimental - does sort of ok, flowers make it worth it for now.
