Canadian Artist Series Roses

Roses for all of Canada

Start with one thousand hybrid roses.

35 made those cuts.

Further testing. Field trials all over Canada.

Slowly the ones meeting the tough standards are being released.

Ok, let's get a bit more serious. After reading the website (in more info below) I came to the conclusion these are great Canadian roses that will grow just about anywhere reasonably close to the US border with some care. But they aren't as tough as the Explorer series. If you are new to roses, go with the explorer's first.
