Canadian Shield roses taking hold nicely

Heather White

The Canadian Shield rose, released in 2017 as the first in a series of roses called Vineland’s 49th Parallel Collection, now have been through one or two winters in gardens across Canada. We checked in on this hardy, disease-resistant repeat bloomer with vivid red blooms and glossy green foliage.

The Chinook Sunrise is the newest hardy rose for northern gardens. The Chinook Sunrise bloom colour is described as a delicious kaleidoscope of shades, from deep coral to pale pink, by Amy Bowen, research director at Vineland Research and Innovation Centre in Vineland Station, Ontario.
