Kind of depressing color but has a wonderful old rose scent.

I live in Houston where the sun is very strong, and I have Oklahoma planted in a pot under the outer branches of an Oak tree. It gets maybe 3-4 hours of sun a day, and it still blooms!!! Today I cut a lovely long stemmed beauty and it is in a vase on my kitchen counter. Who knew this rose was shade tolerant too??? Wow.

In the description for this rose is written: "USDA zone 7b through 10b."
But also: "Does not do well in warmer climates."
Which climates are warmer than 10b? Or why is there a discrepancy between the two quotes? Or do I not understand it well?
...Oops, In the mean time I looked further in the comments and

But still in the description the two quotes seem to conflict for a superficial reader.

I had the same confusion!

It obviously does do well in warmer climates, so we have removed that misleading statement. Thanks for pointing this out Jay-Jay

My mother planted this rose in the late 1960s early 1970s My brother still lives in the family home and Oklahoma is still going strong after at least 45+ years. When I visited him in December last year I took a cutting and brought it back with me. It's progressing very nicely and I'm looking forward to having a cutting from a rose my mother planted all that time ago in my own garden. Here's a photo I took of one of the roses on her bush last December -
