Zone 6B update. I have 3 of these. The oldest one is over 5 years old, and was moved from my old house in SC. No dieback this winter on any of them. Still my healthiest roses. I do nothing special. No winter protection. I wish they all grew like these.

Chamblee sells this as 1 gal own root. (Where I purchased mine) In 6b WV it had zero winter damage (2017/18 bad winter with Feb warm up dipping back to cold), and is putting up laterals now on the main canes I trained horizontal after I planted it last spring. I hope more people chime in, because this is an excellent rose in every way. Huge opening layer cake blooms. It's the first climber I would recommend to someone. I never sprayed it, and it only had a couple old leaves spot. Mine is planted out in the open, where it got wind 24/7. I suspect it would do ok for someone in a colder zone.

I agree. The color is fabulous and the fragrance is even better. A very health and vigorous rose here in zone 6 facing bitter winds from the Hudson river. Vigorous own root plant. Blooms the entire season. Gorgeous as a cut flower.

I got this rose as a band, planted it mid summer last year, after pot growing it a while. It came through winter with no dieback, and is looking super healthy as of mid May. Zone 6b WV
