Ramblin Red Rose on the prairies?

Ive heard this one can come through a zone 3 winter with a fair bit of live wood, though Ive also read about dieback problems in zone 4 and 5 ... so, its hard to know what to think? Derived from Henry Kelsey and said to be superior to HK in hardiness, is anyone having luck with it?

How about Henry Kelsey itself? Back on the farm, it often had died back ... though, Ive now planted another one in a very protected location.

MIL had a Henry Kelsey for years and years that never, never died back.

I bought a Ramblin Red this summer and still don't have it planted yet. ohoh. I will probably plant pot and all in the veggie garden for the winter and see how that goes. It was in full bloom when I bought it. Looked and smelled wonderful. I hope it goes in my garden.

I had a Henry Kelsey in my garden for many years. I think it may be one the mice got last year. It didn't die back for me...but was kind of slow growing.
