Josephine Brownell is the inventor of this rose. The patent application reports the plant died back to the ground at -23℉ and recovered to bloom but only in the second season.
The patent application mentions mounding soil over the crown as winter protection. Therefore the zone hardiness estimate shown here includes some winter protection.
