Roses pruning months?

The United States of America is made up of 50 states,
a federal district, within planting zones 3 - 10.

What are the months of the year for
pruning roses in each state and factoring
in the different planting zone within a state
where appropriate?

I am in IL - near Chicago - it’s zone 5b here. Illinois is a big state (north to south) and at the furthest southern tip I suspect it’s zone 7 there. Here they always say prune your roses when the forsythia bloom (leaves are golden yellow in early spring). Usually that is in mid to late April around here. This year was weird after a mild winter - only the bottom 6 to 12 inches of my forsythia bushes bloomed this year, and that happened 2-3 weeks sooner than usual. The large forsythia bushes in my area really didn’t bloom at all this Spring - I can’t recall that ever happening before.

I usually start to prune about one week after the forsythia bloom and usually finish in early May. This year I was 2-3 weeks ahead of that schedule. For downstate Illinois, I am guessing they prune about 4 weeks earlier than up here.

When you see buds (usually reddish in color) pushing out from green cane, it is time to begin the pruning of your roses. Doesn’t matter what the date is on the calendar.

Thank-You for you valuable response.
