I’m happy to see this photo, Cliff! I find the almost white color quite beautiful. We shall see how the plant colors turn out in my garden, with my milder summer temps. I’ve planted (truthfully, my two sons planted) the Mystic Beauty you gave me in a wonderful spot. It receives full sun until about 3pm, and then is partly shaded. It’s just beginning to settle in, because it was moved once after initial planting. I’ve heard wonderful things about Mystic Beauty, and I’m looking forward to experiencing them myself. Thanks so much for your generosity, Cliff! Elizabeth (AKA Lisa)
My pleasure, Elizabeth. I hope it does well for you.

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.
