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.

This rose thrives and gets bigger intenser colored flowers with a little bit of extra nitrogen.

Although this is one of my favourite roses - beautiful bloom, rich colour and wonderful fragrance - it has rather poor disease resistance - all 5 of mine get quite bad blackspot early in the season, but do seem to recover. It is not a small rose - and needs room or climbing support. Very good as small climber - except for the disease resistance. Not up to modern standards in this respect, but because I am so fond of it, I forgive it its faults.
