The plant is healthy but blooms are already frying in the heat on their first day, and it's only May. (Malta, z11)
I'm not sure how to rate this. I'll wait and see as summer progresses, but if the plant can take the heat but the blooms can't, is this considered "heat tolerant"?
Edit: I have two HCS, they get sun from sunrise to about 3pm.

Almost all "sad" category of blues have sun wilt issues, due to their unique petal biology. Stormy Weather is currently the only except I know of, although it is also a dark purple on top of the "sad" bluing and silver. In fact, it seems to love heat and sun more than most roses.

Can set OP hips. Average 1 or 2 seeds per OP hip for me though.

Just received my potted Popcorn and I am commenting here to say two things about this rose:
- I had no idea the flowers would be so tiny! They truly are exactly the size and color of popcorn. Very aptly named.
- The honey fragrance is really strong! Much more than I had anticipated from such a small plant with such tiny flowers.
A very nice surprise.

Is the stated height here accurate?
I was looking into purchasing this rose which Tantau's site describes as 80-120cm.
Then I came here and saw the height is stated as 120-200cm. Is this a metric conversion mishap or a revised height based on growers' experience? If 200cm is accurate that would be way too tall for my garden.

The site of Keisei in Japan states 130-200 cm as height. Generally roses can grow taller than the "official" description. Best if some members would post their own experiences here.

Thank you Jedmar!
That is too tall for me indeed then.
