I live in Zone 5b (50 miles north of Manhattan), and I kept it over-wintered in a pot on my south-facing deck, with a light plastic cover. The winter (2010-2011) was particularly nasty, and "Chihuly" did not survive. Most of my other roses survived quite well.

Chihuly, like many roses in this color class, has blooms that open with very rich color and then fade quite rapidly. The blooms can be magnificent when they just open, but a far less attractive a day or two later.

The growth habit is very stiff and erect, with the blooms held very upright. The stems are EXTREMELY thorny, and this makes it more difficult to use as a cut flower. The flowers nearly always appear in clusters.

This cultivar does not do well when faced with Wisconsin (Zone 5) winters. Even when boxed up and buried in ground, only a couple of inches at the bottom of stems survives. Once unburied in the spring, it will grow vigorously, however. In a warmer climate, this rose might be a good choice, but I do not recommend it for Zone 5.
