Default Rockin Robin

I'm thinking of purchasing a Rockin Robin rose (I have a weakness for
streaked flowers, and this fits the bill). A little research reveals
that this is a cross between Bonica and Roller Coaster, which is
somewhat reassuring since Bonica is supposed to be a tough plant,
and I prefer low maintenace whenever possible.

So: does anyone know if Rockin Robin is also not delicate?

Thanks.

That is nice - how about the "Forth of July" as I recall.

(BTW, "Fourth of July", at least in the Wayside catalogue.)

Ah, I see - you thought my question had to do with streakiness. But
I was actually asking if Rockin Robin had any of the hardiness of
Bonica (one of its parents).
