Seedlings of Silver Jubilee tend to be dense and bushy. But not particularly disease resistant.

The Plant Description page here on HMF says that this Silver Jubilee rose doesn't do well in warmer climes.
I live in a "warm" zone 5b/6a in northwest Missouri, 50 miles north of Kansas City. In this area we definitely get all four seasons with distinct changes between them. Our summer temps rarely get over 100. For the most part I find this is a more temperate climate. We really only seem to get hot into the 90's and rare low 100's for a short period at the end of July and beginning of August.
I understand that this rose was bred in the UK and that is probably why it prefers and thrives better in more temperate climates. But, I wonder if my area wouldn't be moderate enough to support Silver Jubilee so it can thrive at it's very best.
Can you tell me your zone/location and how Silver Jubilee grows for you. I am thinking of purchasing it this Fall as a band. I would probably overwinter it in a container in my unheated garage with the rest of my Pot Ghetto. Then, come next Spring I would transplant it to a garden bed that faces west and is backed up by my garage wall.
Do you think my climate will support Silver Jubilee?
