It's no surprise that teas do great here in south Louisiana. I've had this rose many years, and actually moved it along with about 100 other roses when I sold my 1rst home. I planted it in the far reaches and other than occasional watering and weeding never tended to it much. I've always gotten a couple flushes each year though. No spraying either. Last year I threw a little fertilizer at it. Well, suddenly it's at least 5'tall & almost as wide. Noticed this morning 3 beautiful blooms, several buds and new red foilage covering the bush. Mind you we just had temps in the 20's about a week ago. Amazing.
