I'm looking for a rose with characteristics similar to a good wife/girlfriend.

  • Low Maintenance
  • Local
  • Non-invasive
  • Pleasant smelling
  • Nice hips

Suggestions anyone?

you can get a "hardy shrub rose" calley "Nearly Wild" which is just what the name sounds like - likes sun, grows low to the ground, requires little or no care, & smells good... Have more info for you this weekend...

I'm not a rose person myself (I have one inherited-with-the-property shrub rose that smells great but has a taste for blood, and one wild climber that gets devoured by sawfly larvae every year but keeps coming back), so I can't really help you. But I know the UofM Extension service is awesome for native rose info, and I can only imagine that UW's would be as well. Good luck!
