cold climate rose recommendations, newspaper article

"WhatâÂÂs the first thing that pops into your head when I say âÂÂroseâÂÂ?

IâÂÂm guessing it had something to do with red roses on Valentinesâ Day, or a proper British countryside rose garden. You probably donâÂÂt think of a tough-as-nails, no-maintenance garden plant that doesnâÂÂt need any winterizing in the fall.

ItâÂÂs no secret that tea roses arenâÂÂt exactly durable in our climate. While ideal for gardeners who love to dote, they can be too fussy for those of us who want to plant it, forget about it, and who still expect scores of our mid-summer roses.

Luckily, Albertans have a surprising number of hardy rose options. In the past decades a massive breeding program has given us dozens of colours, growth habits, and sizes to choose from."
