"What’s the first thing that pops into your head when I say “rose”?

I’m guessing it had something to do with red roses on Valentines’ Day, or a proper British countryside rose garden. You probably don’t think of a tough-as-nails, no-maintenance garden plant that doesn’t need any winterizing in the fall.

It’s no secret that tea roses aren’t 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."
