I have a question about this rose - I was thinking of getting it, after reading the glowing description in "Tea Roses - Old Roses for Warm Climates", the book from Australia.
However, when I looked it up on HMF it said that it does not do well in warm climates (?). This is confusing - this is a tea rose, right? Does anyone know what the comment on HMF means, or where it came from? I realize that "warm climate" can mean lots of different things. Does this comment really mean "does not do well in really hot desert climates", or "does not do well in the very humid warm US South", or does it also mean "does not do well in zone 9 Mediterranean climates with cool wet (usually - not this year!) Winters and warm, dry summers", which is the climate where I live?
Any thoughts or clues appreciated - this is the first time I have seen this sort of comment about a tea rose. Thanks so much for your help -
