Madame Isaac Pereire vs. Souvenir du President Lincoln

I've wanted to grow Madame Isaac Pereire but my first try ended up with fried flowers despite a vigorous bush (west facing wall in intense desert heat). My second try in partial shade was a plant that refused to grow after two years, then died over winter. I've read that Souvenir du President Lincoln is similar, and I've read that he is more heat tolerant. Have you had any experience comparing the two? Should I give MIP another try? Or give up?
