When the Morden Research Rose Program closed in 2010, the rights to the rose lines were awarded to the Canadian Nursery Landscape Association. The Artist Series of roses, ‘Emily Carr’, ‘Felix Leclerc’, ‘Bill Reid’, ‘Campfire’ and ‘Oscar Peterson’ came out of this consortium. More recently, the Vineland Research & Innovation Centre in Ontario, in partnership with the Canadian Nursery Landscape Association, continue to introduce new hardy roses. The roses known as the 49th Parallel Collection include ‘Canadian Shield’, ‘Aurora Borealis’, ‘Chinook Sunrise’ and ‘Yukon Sun’. Any of these relatively recent introductions are well worth a try.
