If you try to grow this rose in an area with very hot summers, it will need shade, shade and more shade; water and more water. Absolutely _hates_ the heat and the foliage burns very, very easily in the sun.

I have attempted to grow two of these in Melbourne, AU (Zone 9b) where Summers can reach 45C/115F and it simply doesn't cope unless it's protected from the sun.

If you have cool Summers, definitely try it - it has a magnificent strong burnt-orange flower.
