Cyndi, they're mentioned in this article from the Dallas Morning News, so I'd say yes, but I think it always best to check with a good local garden center, because they've got first-hand experience with what does best in your immediate area.
Hmm, a new type of rose for me. Interesting indeed. Great advice, Douglas. You can also check with your local extension agent to see if this variety does well in your area.
Thanks, Doug. I did not notice the source of origin.
