There are a few Canadian types of Roses, These are the Explorer, Morden, and Parkland. There are others but not readily available yet. The best part is that they cost about the same as most others and they survive where others struggle.
The new Explorer rose garden features the beauty of this made-in-Canada collection.
In one of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada’s (AAFC) most impressive horticultural success stories, this series of roses was developed at the Central Experimental Farm to be hardy in tough Canadian climates. About 25 years ago, Dr Felicitas Svejda was successful with the first 13 cultivars which she named after Canadian explorers.
