This rose is one of the hardiest I've ever seen. I can't say that it's an evergreen in my zone, but pretty close to it. It's the last to lose its leaves in the fall/winter and the VERY first to put new leaves out in the spring. Ice/snow/freezing winds don't faze this rose whatsoever. Gets no protection from wind and has very little mulch around the base. Blooms like crazy in the spring, a very very bushy plant. Not bad with thorns. VERY hardy. Too bad it's a once-bloomer.
