from my view it looks like it does fine with heat. Do the petals scorch? I can't tell from the picture.
Sorry, but I don't have a clue. I had 5,000 roses in the garden back then as well as 10,000 nursery plants and it's extremely difficult to remember details from those days.

I have Wise Portia as own-root, the petals are soft and it's best in partial shade. Young Lycidas is similar, but can tolerate full-sun better. Vase life of Wise Portia is only 3 days, versus 4 days for Young Lycidas. Roses that last long in the vase, can take full-sun & heat better. Veteran's Honor can take hot-full-sun, and blooms last a week in the vase. Chartreuse de Parme (RU summer sale) takes heat well and lasts long in the vase, it's a better choice for warm zone than Stephen's Big (a water-hog). The only reason why I grow Stephen's big is that my zone is too cold for Chartreuse de Parme ... both last long in the vase.
