Canadian Roses


Species - All roses originated from species roses. This is a selection of species that are extremely hardy and perfect for Rosa alba - These are some of the oldest and most sought after roses. Their colours vary from white to pink and most are Rosa Gallica - A superb collection of old European roses that had a great impact on the breeding of modern roses with their spectacular Rosa pimpinellifolia - These are commonly called Scotch roses. They were very popular in the British isles where hundreds were developed. Rosa Rugosa - No other group has had such an impact on northern rose growing. These rugged hardy bushes grow naturally in sand dunes Canadian Artist Series 49th Parallel Series - This is a brand new series of roses to be introduced from Canada, more will soon be released Explorer Roses - This marvelous group of roses was bred by Agriculture Canada to provide hardy repeat blooming roses. Assorted Hybrids - This is a varied mix of roses originating from around the world.Most bloom throughout the season. Canadian Heritage Roses Other Roses - This is a list of more roses that we grow at the nursery. We may only have them potted or they may be in short supply. PLEASE INQUIRE.

Exploring Explorer roses

By Bob Osborne, Corn Hill Nursery, Petitcodiac, NB

We no longer need to be envious or angry for we now have at our disposal a veritable cornucopia of roses that are hardy, easy to grow, beautifully formed and disease resistant to boot. These roses have come out of breeding programs in Europe, the United States (U.S.) and Scandinavia, but the most important of all have been developed in our own backyard.

Since the turn of the century, both amateur and professional rose breeders have been pushing the limits of roses further north. Some of the most important of these pioneers were people like Frank Skinner from Manitoba, Percy Wright from Saskatchewan, Georges Bugnet, Robert Simonet and John Wallace from Alberta, and doctors Isabella Preston, Henry Marshall and William Saunders from the Department of Agriculture. Using hardy rose species crossed with the best garden roses, they created varieties that were much hardier than any that had been produced previously. Many of these had good form and bloomed far longer than earlier hardy roses.

In this tradition, "Agriculture Canada" began a rose breeding program in the 1960s under the direction of breeder Felicitas Svejda. Her objective was to use roses from these earlier efforts and cross them with newly developed roses from Europe to create a series of roses that would be hardy, disease resistant, repeat blooming and easy to propagate from cuttings. A key component in this program was a new hybrid, "Rosa kordessii", developed by the firm of Kordes in Germany. This rose was a relatively hardy pillar rose with long, vigorous shoots and exceedingly healthy foliage. Dr. Svejda also used several repeat blooming and compact "Rosa rugosa" varieties such as "Fru Dagmar Hastrup" and "Schneezwerg". The results of this ambitious program have forever changed northern rose gardens. In order of their release, here is a quick look at the roses that have come to be known as the Explorers.

Canadian Explorer Roses


Canadian Explorer Roses

Canadian Explorer Roses were developed to withstand the cold Canadian winters, but will also thrive in warm and humid summers. The Explorer roses are very easy to care for, needing minimal or no spraying for disease and insects, and are hardy to -35 C with only snow to protect them. Pruning requirements are minimal.

If you garden in a cold, northern climate, and like roses, have you considered the Canadian Explorer series? Or if you have some, have you wondered just who these explorers were?

This series of about 22 cultivars was bred from the 1960's through the 1990's, at the agriculture research stations first at Ottawa, Ontario and later at l'Assomption, Quebec. They were bred to withstand the cold Canadian winters, with parents either rugosas or "Kordesii hybrids" (the latter being bred in the late 1940's in Germany).
Among those with long canes that arch, or can be trained as climbers, is "William Baffin". Bred in 1983, it has deep pink, double, and fragrant blooms. This British arctic explorer, in expeditions in 1615-16, was sent to find the supposed Northwest Passage across the New World for seafarers to more quickly reach the spice market of the orient.

"Henry Kelsey" is another long cane rose, bred in 1981, with some disease resistance. It has medium red, semi-double, fragrant flowers that usually repeat bloom. This rose's namesake was the first inland explorer for the Hudson's Bay Company in the late 1600's. Other long cane selections include Captain Samuel Holland, John Cabot, and John Davis.

The rugosa roses have fairly unique multi-part or compound leaves, usually a rich green, and usually many thorns. "David Thompson" is a rugosa in this series, bred in 1979 with deep pink, double, and fragrant flowers. It is one of my favorites as it is one of the few with continuous blooms through the summer. This explorer was a famous fur trader, and geographer, in the late 1700s and early 1800s.

"Henry Hudson" is a name most recognize for the river in New York and bay north of Ontario that he explored in the 1600's, once again in search of a Northwest Passage. The rose by this name, another rugosa, was bred in 1976 and has white, double, and very fragrant flowers.

"Martin Frobisher" was another English explorer looking for the Northwest Passage, only in the late 1500's. The rugosa rose with his name, bred in 1968, has light pink flowers, semi-double, fragrant, and repeats well. Other rugosa roses in this series include "Charles Albanel" and "Jens Munk".

Most of the Explorer roses are classified as shrub types. "Champlain" is my favorite, although the least hardy. Bred in 1981, its flowers are dark red, semi-double, and fragrant. This famous explorer in the 1600's of "New France," now roughly Quebec, has a large lake named after him.

"George Vancouver" was an Englishman who, in the late 1700's, explored the coasts of British Columbia and proved there was no Northwest Passage. Most know his name from the large city. This more recent shrub rose, bred in 1994, has good disease resistance. It has medium red flowers that are double and repeat bloom.

"Adelaide Hoodless" is the only woman honored in this series, and was not actually an explorer. She was a visionary social reformer in Canada during the Victorian period, and established many women's organizations. The shrub rose by this name was bred in 1973 with medium red, semi-double flowers.

Other red shrub roses in this series include "Alex MacKenzie" and "John Franklin". Pink shrub roses include "Frontenac", "Lambert Closse", "Louis Jolliet", "Prairie Joy", "Royal Edward", and "Simon Fraser". The shrub rose "J.P. Connell2 is the only light yellow in the series, and also is named for one of the few non-explorers in this series.
