The flower of this rose was lovely and I loved having it in a vase. However it bloomed little and when it rained the flowers rotted. I think it would do well in a hot, dry climate. I ended up replacing it in the garden.

You got it right. St. Patrick seems to love a hot, dry climate. The blooms last a very long time on the bush, as in the vase, so if you don't cut them that will reduce the bloom frequency. But, who cares, since the bush usually has beautiful blooms.

St. Patrick is listed as hearty to Zone 7. I've grown two of them for ten winters with no protection and they have survived a number of winters with temperatures as cold as -5 F.

I planted this rose 9 months ago and it has been great.
We had extremely hot & dry weather over summer, with many days in the high 30s to low-mid 40s deg. C, (95-111 deg. F). The leaves on many of my other roses were burnt from the heat but my little St Patrick showed no signs of stress.
Since then it has had a number of flushes of blooms, with a green tinge and opening to a lime-yellow. The medium-sized flowers last for more than a week in a vase. The stems are strong enough to hold the flowers upright. The shape of the flowers is a lovely classic shape.
I am very pleased with this rose so far and it seems well suited to a Mediterranean-type climate.

Although the winter of 2011-2012 was atypically mild, my St Patrick had no problems bouncing back in my zone 5b/6a. I did nothing for winter protection, either. We had no snow cover, mild temps, and very high winds most of the winter.
