The most reliable rose for Central Florida

Iceberg Floribunda Rose. This pup gets black spot every now and then but all I do is manually take off the affected leaves. Other than that I prune it without rhyme or reason about twice a year and it is doing great! No special watering or fertilizing...just throw in a few smashed egg shells and banana peels every blue moon and she is happy as can be. I guess the key is that if you live in a humid environment like I do you must, must, must get the roses with the best possible root stock for your area, in this case the best is Floribunda.
