Here Comes the Sun: Vineland expands 49th Parallel Collection with release of Chinook Sunrise rose
VINELAND STATION, Ontario, March 14, 2019 – A new bloom has dawned in Vineland’s 49th Parallel Collection of bred-in-Canada garden and landscape roses. Vineland Research and Innovation Centre officially released Chinook Sunrise™, the second in a series of roses developed for their hardiness and ability to blossom almost anywhere in Canada. The rose was unveiled at Canada Blooms, Canada’s largest garden and flower festival.
Chinook Sunrise boasts outstanding beauty with its unique coral blossoms resembling the bright, warm hues of a rising sun. The flowers start as deep apricot buds, revealing a riot of pink as they open and the days are growing warmer. Chinook Sunrise’s incredible range of colour strays from the usual dark pink and red shades that have dominated Canadian rose breeding.
