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.
Notes:
The patent application mentions mounding soil over the crown as winter protection. Therefore the zone hardiness estimate shown here includes some winter protection.
