    I use to grown lavender in Singapore, study more on the requirement environment the rose type you like, try to create the suitable environment for the plant; for example colder climate move the plant indoor to a cooler spot use fan and use some indoor lighting for plant. Also note for the type of soil the plant need.

    roses thrive in hot weather however they do not like high humidity ,recently some have been bred to have a higher tolerance to humidity so I would try one of these but I really think it will be an uphill battle

    Roses can grow anywhere where there is a suitable temperate climate.Although best suited to a well worked clay soil,which contains ample nutrition,there are roses which grow quite happily at the seaside.
    They’re best grown in a rose bed,or in a mixed shrub border as roses don’t compete well with other species.
    Given proper cultivation,there’s no reason why roses shouldn’t grow well in the Philippines.

    I don’t know why not. I live in the southern US and have roses. The big problem will be with pests. Its a constant battle in my backyard with all kinds of bugs and fungus. If you want to mess around with the really picky care they require I’m sure they’ll grow. Maybe not all the hybrids though – choose one that is meant for warmer, humid climates.

    It will be difficult. The Philippines are very humid. Try to choose varieties that don’t need winter dormancy too, because it’s not going to get cold.
