Default Roses for hot, dry summers

I'd like some suggestions for roses that do well in hot, dry climates. I
live in non-coastal Northern California--zone 9--so we have relatively mild
damp winters with potentially very hot dry weather in the summer.

The area I'm thinking of planting is not huge so I'm mainly looking for
medium sized plants.

I'm looking for:
1. strong fragrance
2.disease resistance (aren't we all!)
3. more compact as opposed to sprawling roses
4. repeat bloomers since this will be in front of our house
5. flowers that will hold up in the heat.
6. most any color except out and out orange--I do like blends

I'm not set on any one type of rose, i.e. hybrid teas, floribundas, shrub-in
fact I kind of like a mix.

Thanks for any and all suggestions!

I'm in Zone 8, but the last two summers here
have been hot (temps in high 90s, low 100s)
with lots of sun and drought. I don't spray
my roses and some will get some blackspot,
but not enough to be worrisome. My roses that
have done well and fit your criteria include:

Purple Heart, Floribunda [dark mauve]
Marilyn Monroe, Hybrid Tea [yellow blend]
Scentimental, Floribunda [red & white striped]
Moonstone, Hybrid Tea [white, pink edges]
Rose de Rescht, Damask or Portland [reddish pink]
Souvenir de la Malmaison, Bourbon [pink]

My color descriptions aren't great, so you might
check photos at www.helpmefind.com to get a
better idea of what these roses look like.

Hi Gail,

Thanks for responding! I just ordered a couple of Moonstone roses yesterday
so I'm glad to hear good things about them! I'll check out the others. I
also ordered a few roses from David Austin Roses--on his website there's a
listing for roses that do well in hot areas so I ordered several of the
highest rated ones. I've grown Austin roses before and in our climate they
seem to do very well--usually quite a bit larger than described. Also, most
of the Austin roses I've grown have been fairly resistant to disease as
well. I'm running the risk of buying more roses than I have space for!

Thanks again!
Bonnie

Hi Bonnie -

I was going to mention David Austin roses, so
I'm glad you're getting some of those. Some
can grow quite large and sprawling. Others
seem to be nicely compact and medium sized.
I have "The Prince" which seems to fall into
the latter category. Also "Pat Austin", but that's
an orange. The only Austin rose I haven't had
much luck with is a yellow, "Symphony". I have
two copies and neither is doing well. But my
other Austins are doing great.

Gail
