This sturdy little upright bush has proven itself to be heat tolerant. We had temps in the 100's that toasted my rose blossoms, but this guy did fine. It was in a 2" pot the first week of August 2009 and is doing very well. The double corolla is so packed with petals, it reminds me of Blue Eyes. I haven't found any height info on it yet, but it appears to have a dense growth pattern which will be good for supporting the heavy blossoms.
