Add to your list Portland, Oregon where they also seem to grow fine! I just dug up and transplanted a mature partially blooming plant at this unfortunate time of the year for such activity! I hope it doesn't die! btw, it also seems to have a nice fragrance.

love this rose. The only reason it is not a perfect rose is because it has no scent (at least mine doesnot). This rose blooms regardless on the heat and humidity. Bloom time is very quick. Stays for long periods of time on the bush as well as the vase. Lovers Lane (LL) is hardy for zone 6 winters. Keeps its high centered form from bud to the end of its cycle. grows upright. Doesnot fade and is disease resistant.

This rose is a nice rose for cutting. It has a long vase life. It repeats well and is hardy with some winter protection in zone 5.
