Devoniensis (grafted) from Palatine hardy to zone 5b? really?????

3 years ago

Palatine has Devoniesis, AKA Magnolia Rose, Victoria, for sale, of course grafted on multiflora root stock. Their website says this plant is stable till Z5b. Is this even possible? Even if the roots survived wouldn't the canes die? Then wouldn't it be over? This is a knowledgeable nursery. They would not put out a rose that is going to fail, right?

So what is this about? Is this some other Devoniesis? They say it only grows about 7-8 feet and is very fragrant.

I have always wanted D but never could because it is not hardy at all. Would this D work for me?
