In the description for this rose is written: "USDA zone 7b through 10b."
But also: "Does not do well in warmer climates."
Which climates are warmer than 10b? Or why is there a discrepancy between the two quotes? Or do I not understand it well?
...Oops, In the mean time I looked further in the comments and

But still in the description the two quotes seem to conflict for a superficial reader.

I had the same confusion!

It obviously does do well in warmer climates, so we have removed that misleading statement. Thanks for pointing this out Jay-Jay

My mother planted this rose in the late 1960s early 1970s My brother still lives in the family home and Oklahoma is still going strong after at least 45+ years. When I visited him in December last year I took a cutting and brought it back with me. It's progressing very nicely and I'm looking forward to having a cutting from a rose my mother planted all that time ago in my own garden. Here's a photo I took of one of the roses on her bush last December -

Although I do not actually grow this rose, I did recently have the opportunity to see it and smell it at a nursery.

I do have a 'Mister Lincoln' growing here, which has a great scent that is certainly nothing to complain about, but in my opinion the scent of 'Oklahoma' was even better. Hard to say exactly why, but it just seemed a bit lusher and earthier and sexier.

Given that it's supposed to be as tough as old boots, I may have to get one sometime.

Simply put, find the right spot In the garden and you will not believe this vigorous, tall, stunning gorgeous red rose. It takes your breath away when in full flush. Many of the blooms are single stemmed and have enormous, I mean enormous blooms. Often many with blackened petal tips that just set it aside from any other red. I had to move it three different times to get it to grow like this, it now faces southwest, with partial morning shade. I feel it needs hot afternoon sun. This is a rooting plant, after only being a stick last fall to now 4 feet tall with 7 blooms on it, after surviving three frost, and a tornadic hail storm. It's a winner , if you like red and very tall , Oklahoma should be your pick.
