Canadian Shield rose returns
The snow is still falling in many parts of Canada but green thumbs everywhere are already planning what to grow in their gardens this summer.
The hugely popular Canadian ShieldTM rose from Vineland’s 49th Parallel Collection, developed at Vineland Research and Innovation Centre (Vineland), will be available again in 2018 to take root from coast to coast.
Canadian Shield debuted in limited quantities in 2017, in time for Canada’s 150th birthday celebrations, and this made-in-Canada rose hasn’t disappeared now that the party is over.
Canadian Shield is a low-maintenance, versatile garden and landscape rose that promises plenty of full red flowers and glossy green foliage throughout the growing season.
Vineland's 49th Parallel Collection.
The rose is a repeat bloomer, making it a majestic beauty all season, and just as its name suggests, it’s a hardy flower that can stand up to winter and resist disease from St. John’s, N.L. to Victoria, B.C.
Vineland’s 49th Parallel Collection stems from Canada’s national rose program at Vineland in partnership with the Canadian Nursery Landscape Association. Canadian Shield is the first rose released in the collection and was named Canada Blooms’ 2017 Plant of the Year.
Coming soon to the collection:
- Chinook SunriseTM in 2019
- Aurora BorealisTM in 2021
