Tom Sternberg is sharing some photos today of roses he’s grown in the sometimes harsh climate of the Canadian prairies.
“Roses are difficult here.” Prairie author W. O. Mitchell expressed the frustration of trying to grow roses in the extreme climate of the Canadian prairie. Tea Roses and David Austin may live for a while, but there are no guarantees. Some wonderful new hardy varieties are now my favorites.
‘Modern Blush’ is very cold hardy and has romantic pink flowers. The rose was bred with the word “morden” in its name. Morden Research Station In Manitoba, and beautiful for cold weather, there are very durable plants.
The ‘Canadian Shield’ is new to me this year. It is part of the 49th parallel series of roses, which was developed in Vineland Research and Innovation Center in Vineland, Ontario.
‘Akele Kabhi Nai’ is a beautiful rose bred at the modern research station and designated as a fundraiser. Ever Alone Cancer Foundation. A beautiful flower, as beautiful as the cause it supports!
