Roses bloom again
A new addition - morden shrub rose, called " Morden sunrise "
Roses are a recent addition to my garden. I eschewed them as being too much trouble, but the Canadian roses developed by Agriculture Canada and very easy to grow. They add a wonderful flush of colour in June and again in Fall when you need a punch to invigorate the landscape. I have too much shade for florabundas or tea roses, but shrub roses grow well here. The Morden series, developed in Morden, Manitoba are very hardy and disease resistant. They bloom reliably and have long lasting flowering times. They are not as susceptible to black spot as other roses.
