Shrub roses

Hi, I've been looking at modern shrub roses. Astrid Grafin von Hardenberg, Summer Memories, Addictive Lure and Sonia Rykel have enormous appeal for me.

I'm hoping that someone in my climate has experience of these. It's probably classified as 10b, lowest winter temp is 8C (47F), and reaches 40C (104F) occasionally in summer, but mostly around 30C (86f), with highish humidity for 2 months late summer.

The National Rose Society of Australia has a website with links to several local clubs.

I'll put a link below -- a local expert would know which varieties would do best in your microclimate in the Sidney area:

Thanks Petaloid, I've looked at their site. They list a number of roses that haven't been good for me,and don't list many that have been. But I will get in touch with someone in the Sydney area.

I would still be interested to know how others have fared with the roses I listed.
