Eight colourful rose recommendations

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


‘Emily Carr’ shrub rose (R. [Canadian Artist Series] ‘Emily Carr’)
Zone 3
The natural successor to the now-defunct breeding program that brought us the Explorer and Parkland series, launched by Drs. Campbell Davidson and Claude Richer-Leclerc. Introduced in 2007, rich red ‘Emily Carr’ tolerates average soil, has good disease resistance and blooms from early summer until frost. Also look for ‘Felix Leclerc’ and ‘Bill Reid’.

Glowing peace hybrid tea rose (R. ‘MEIzoele’ syn. ‘Philippe Noiret’)
Zone 6
The result of a cross between Sun King (‘MEInarval’) and Roxane (‘LAPdal’), and able to boast the renowned ‘Peace’ as a grandparent, its 40 to 45 petals are a saturated blend of golden amber edged with ripe cantaloupe. Introduced by the French House of Meilland in 2000, it won an AARS award in 2001. Good disease resistance and a light tea rose fragrance.
