Lykkefund is probably one of the hardiest white rambler. I grow it in Zone 5a, but against a wall so it would be safe to say 5b, and never had any die-back or frost damage. Even when we have, as we seem to have more and more, "unstable winters" with rather hot periods (around +8) followed by sudden cold periods, it doesn't seem to mind at all! In fact, opposite to a lot of multiflora ramblers that can be very hardy but start growing very early, sometimes even in the middle of the winter if we have one of those "hot periods", and the get frost nipped in the spring, Lykkefund stays dormant until quite late and i have never seen, over 8 or something years that i've been growing eat, any spring freeze damage.

i grow this rose in front of a north facing wall in zone 6b. it flowers prolific, really nice "white" flowers. in fact flowers vary in color according to weather and/ or age of flower from light fleshy/ warm pink (buds are always tinged with pink) over very light yellow to white, initially with a large egg-yolk yellow center when opening, but nevertheless one might call it a "white" rose. with me it is now in it's 3rd year, grown already 3 m high. a magnet for bumble-bees. superb scent. really hardy, even though we had 3 weeks of severe frost (up to -18┬░Celsius) with almost no snow cover last winter, there was absolutely no damage. for me one of the most beautiful of the white rambling roses.
