    Yes.

    Roses love drip, water on the roots not the leafs.

    We usually do 2-4 gph on each rose.

    My rose bushes at home are on drip and they do real well. They have 2gph emitters and I control total watering amount via the controller.

    With the typical .705" poly distribution tubing you could have up to 37 4.0 gph (gallon per HOUR) emitters. Therefore, you could have two 2.0 gph emitters placed around each bush and run it all off of one zone.
