In my alkaline clay, own-root Frederic Mistral is hardy and vigorous in zone 5a. The size is 3' x 5', very wide, needs room. Paul in CT, zone 5b, informed me that Frederic Mistral needs protection during spring frosts - this explains why Fred flowers so late. Fred needs full-sun and plenty of water for best flowering.

Frederic Mistral is terrific! Good substance and form on long stems, and strongly scented. Grows like it's on steroids.

frederic mistral seems to be hardier as it is commonly thought of because mine passed this hard winter without any damages, while other ht´s and floribundas like julia´s rose, just joey, cynthia brooke, amber queen, papa meilland, oklahoma and even paul´s lemon pillar died back to the ground.
