Peggy Martin rose

Has anyone grown a Peggy Martin rose in PA? I have ordered one and the information I have seen tells about its great success in the south. Am wondering if I might have made a mistake in ordering this rose for zone 6. Would appreciate hearing from someone who has any experience with this rose.

I am not a rose person, but I just read an article in today's New York Times about the Peggy Rockefeller rose garden. They have one called the "Peggy Martin Survivor" that bloomed after Katrina. If they have Peggy Martin roses in NY's colder zone, then maybe yours will be fine, too.

Here is a link that might be useful: NYT article about Peggy Rockefeller Rose Garden

That is the rose that I have ordered. It is a thornless climber and I'm eager to see if it is tough enough to live with me. I'm not quite as hard on roses as Katrina must have been.
Thanks for the link.

RE: Peggy Martin rose

I know this is an old thread and I'm normally a lurker so I hope I'm not breaking etiquette but I'd be interested to hear from carolnwbg about Peggy Martin in PA as I've just ordered two. How is it doing a few years on? I'm hoping to see her 'take over' a fairly large space so it would be encouraging to hear that she's done well.
