Could someone say, please, what zone is Lady of Shallot hardy to? I'm in 6b. Thank you!

Most of Austen's yellow and yellowish orange roses have Noisette parentage. You might want to contact a local rose society before ordering this one. However, much can be accomplished with a south facing wall and copious water.

That's an interesting assumption. I know Austin has mentioned using some Noisettes, but I note that many of his large-flowered yellows descend from 'Aloha' and/or 'Yellow Cushion'. Those he acknowledges having Noisette ancestry tend have smaller flowers in clusters. I'm sure there are exceptions, but considering the yellow-shade roses for which he has disclosed ancestry, I think it's safe to say that many don't have Noisette ancestry, and will likely be as cold-hardy as most Floribundas.

I live in 6a and until now no harm at all from (even bare)frosts. It can get big and might be used in flowerbeds or as a solitaire.
No harm to the petals from scorching sunlight.
No long vase-life, just like most of the Austins. Fair scent.
Relatively disease free, even without spraying and after a big first flush, almost always with one or a few flowers.(scattered)
PS: no weak necks!

You're welcome...
And why not (it's a pleasure to) share experience on HMF, when others can profit from that?
As I did, when I was new on this site and used it (as well as books) to enhance my knowledge and expand my collection.

Agree with you, same with my own-root Lady of Shalott in partial shade.

Like most of the English roses, this one is not well suited for the southeast US. Blackspot and defoliation in South Carolina, zone 8a. Very lanky canes here.

This is one amazing rose! My bush as of yesterday ( Feb. 1st ) has 15 big buds and two opened blossoms and is very healthy. It is always in bloom in zone 9, San Francisco area. The bush is aboiut two years old.
