Eight colourful rose recommendations

Quebec-based garden Rose des Champs provides a few showstoppers to add to your list


Elina hybrid tea rose (R. ‘DICjana’ syn. ‘Peaudouce’)
Zone 4

Introduced by Dickson Nurseries in the U.K. (1983). A cross between ‘Nana Mouskouri’ and Lolita (‘KORlita’), Elina’s large blooms (up to 15 centimetres wide) are beautiful at every stage, from bud to fully open. Its 35-petalled flowers have a slight fragrance and its foliage is disease resistant. RHS AGM 1993

Blaze of glory climbing rose (R. ‘JACamite’ syn. ‘Blaze Improved’)
Zone 5

Hybridized by Keith Zary for Jackson & Perkins and introduced in 2006. From its female parent (Dynamite [‘JACsat’]), it inherited a vigorous climbing habit and large, hybrid tea flowers while its papa (Dream Weaver [‘JACpicl’]) contributed “clusters” of blooms and repeat flowering. Sweetly fragrant and resistant to mildew and rust.
