I keep this rose in a big container on a balcony facing south in zone 8a. Survived winter temperatures of - 14°C without protection - and without any damage.
Is rather susceptible to mildew - I have never seen it without mildew, in fact.
And it's very floriferous - but it's only with luck that it opens the buds completely. Every bud is a promise - but seldom kept.

LOVE your comment because this is my experience so far. Bought one last fall, it overwintered in my greenhouse shockingly mildew free.............I am in 6a/we had no "winter" this year............outside it goes............suddenly, outside, mildew all over but the plant is strong, it is hearty, it has been warm to even hot here in Columbus but not THAT we go: 7 strong gorgeous buds. NONE opened. NONE. NOT ONE. Books all say this one LOVES Las Vegas. I guess that is about all it COULD love! 0% humidity? The plant itself is so strong but the mildew, now checked, caught my attention in a bad way and the fact it cannot OPEN a bloom here in Columbus in May? can ride out the summer but being a tea, I will let it, um, stay in its pot here until, um, yeah..............January..........that ought to let nature take its course..............why is this one so famous anyway????

When it's good it's very very good, but when it's bad, it's horrid ...
I culled mine long ago, even though I was collecting Teas.

Margaret, one of the blooms that actually did almost open was so ugly I literally think I gasped.....meanwhile, good ol' Safrano is incredible. Beautiful little apricot rose, blows open and fades, but holding its own amazingly at 173 years old! And Rosette Delizy has yet to bloom but looks promising, my little band was so small when I got it in March but it growing well and looks promising.......I have a tea seedling that I grew, collected from in front of the Mission Santa Barbara....have told Kim about it, seems to be a natural hybrid possibly with Souv d'Elise Vardon as the Mother (I just put all the hips together so I have no idea)....anyway, that one LOVES my greenhouse room and got me interested in teas here in 6a...........
