Comments Sizzle. If you live in zone 3 and covet a vermilion rose, this is the only game in town. Those in zones 4 and 5 might do well to look here first, too. Of course, vermilion is a rare color for shrub roses, so those in even warmer zones might choose this rose for its unique hot color, too. Sure, you might find a better floribunda in this color range if you live in a desert somewhere, but this is a tough color to produce in roses without significant fungal problems.
