I wonder if this rosa "lavender Pinnochio" can be grown in New Mexico, USA. We live in a valley between Santa Fe and Taos. Normally, we can go down to -10 in winter. Hmm...
Thank you, SHK

Probably. This line of roses prefer heat over cold or wet. The main origin of the "true mauves" is derived from a desert rose species.

If this rose is ill-advised by the local societies there, you can also inquire about 'Distant Drums', which is easy to grow, just as fragrant, and of a similar color type. Although it ranges from tans to orchid, rather than tans to mauve.
