G. Thomas is one of a few David Austin "New English Roses" i have found to be worthwhile in the U.S. Gulf Coast Region. Zone 8b. 56 " rain much of it typically in the winter. I have it on its own roots, ~10 years old. Tendency to get leggy unless judiciously pruned. Will climb or can be pruned as a 5-6 ft shrub. Will also cover a wall if offered support such as trellis or wires and good nutrition. One of only three, of the half dozen i have tried that does well here. The others are "The Pilgrim", and "Gertrude Jekyll" the latter is outstanding here if pruned back each year fairly hard and a very important Austin introduction as it is a perfect replacement for the great rose Comte de Chambord which struggles here due to disease.

Is Graham Thomas resistant to leaf scorch/cane scald in hot, dry areas?

Thanks, Nate

If it gets enough water. To grow GT, I found that winter irrigation was needed. GT is not drought resistant.

Thanks Nastarana. Yes, heat scorch is affected by watering, but even WITH watering, many modern roses show scorch after the first 100 F+ heat wave.

So it sounds like GT was a winter grower for you, like one of the old Teas? Interesting. I had seen you mention GT's need for winter watering on gardenweb.

I noticed that GT bloomed best when there had been a rainy winter. One winter when there had been almost no rain, GT did not bloom at all. From that I concluded that winter irrigation was necessary for that rose.
