Floribunda • Pleasing light anise with fruit • 3' wide x 2.5' tall • Created by B. Jalbert
Talk about flower power! This superb new introduction of ours produces masses of wavy orange roses all summer long. The foliage is superb, glossy green and shows excellent resistant to typical rose diseases. We are pleased with its improved winter hardiness and bushy well branched plant habit. This is an excellent landscape type rose beautifully suited mixed plantings. It received its name at a special ceremony in Holland.
Floribunda • Moderate rose scent • 3' wide x 2.5' tall • Created by Kordes
This is a fantastic new deep shimmering-red floribunda with an outstanding health record. The plant grows dense and stocky, with strong stems holding single stem as well as clusters of rich velvet red roses. Tutu has exceptional deep glossy green foliage that resists all diseases. Flowers are large for a floribunda, fully double, and hold up well to damp weather. Wonderful as a bedding rose or brilliant hedge. If you like a tidy looking rose you will love this variety.
Floribunda • Spicy-sweet licorice rose perfume • 3' wide x 3' tall • Created by T. Carruth
This rose is just as remarkable as the woman it was named for! Julia Child is hands-down the best in her colour class, and she has won awards worldwide for reliable performance. Beautiful golden yellow anise-licorice scented blooms are produced in massive waves all summer long. Everyone who has grown Julia comments on her constant flowering and incredible health. I have noticed that she is much more winter hardy than most modern roses as well. Cut, she makes a wonderful bouquet! Simply an outstanding rose that should be in everyone's collection. Excellent for mass bedding or hedges. Also great in large containers.
Floribunda • Light rose scent • 3' wide x 3' tall • Created by B. Jalbert
I have included one of my own hybrids because it has proven itself in our climate over and over. She is doing us proud in no-spray public parks, and pleases everyone who grows one. Flowers are beautifully formed in a classic tea rose style and are held proudly on a dense-growing, healthy shrub. Royal City Rose has taken every test we have put her through and has come out blooming like a champ. Grows easily as a landscape shrub rose, but produces elegant "real rose" flowers! Colour is soft shades of apricot with warm pink hue.

The perfect red cut rose without all the fuss! Grande Amore has won top awards and has received an ADR designation. There are only a handful of hybrid teas in the world to make it through the tough ADR trials, which evaluate resistance to pest, disease, and natural beauty, by putting them through no-spray testing. Grande Amore is extremely vigorous and well branched, producing dozens of long stem roses all summer, and its blackspot resistance is excellent! The exquisitely formed roses are both rain and sun-proof. This red has a wonderful sheen to its petals.
Floribunda • Moderate rose scent • 2.5' wide x 3-4' tall • Created by Kordes
Finally, a truly healthy, easy to grow and highly disease resistant rose in that beautiful lavender blue colour that gardeners love. It took the master rose breeders, Kordes of Germany, to bring us this new wonder rose. Another step forward in the quest for easy care yet beautiful roses. Our test plants were disease free with no spraying and produced the most beautiful bouquets of roses! This is a must have new rose. Strong and upright growing to around 3 feet.
Floribunda • Light citrus scent • 4' wide x 4' tall • Created by Harkness
This has to be the most reliable, free-blooming floribunda in the world! The color is brilliant shades of orange and yellow, always pure and fresh, and never harsh. The foliage is dark, glossy green and highly resistant to disease. People have told us for years that Livin' Easy is the best rose they have ever planted, and it's well suited for our coastal climate. This is just a superb garden rose. We are thrilled to offer a golden yellow version of this rose, called 'Easy Going' as well. It's identical in every way to Livin' Easy but has a soft, golden yellow flower. 1996 AARS Winner. Also known as 'Fellowship' in Britain, where it was named for the Rotary movement.
Hybrid Tea • Mild fragrance • 3' wide x 4' tall • Created by P. Dickson
One of the most beautiful roses we grow. The color is a soft, pleasing cream-yellow and changes slightly with the weather. Elina is a proven garden rose that often stands out as the strongest hybrid tea in "no spray" gardens. She is elegant and flawless at all stages. Very strong growing and well branched. The flowers are large and elegant in all stages. Very fast repeat bloom cycle, and easy to grow as well! A true star in the garden.
Climber • Strong rose scent • 6' tall • Created by J. Fleming
Bred by Joyce Fleming, one of Canada's leaders in rose hybridizing, and named for Dr. Roberta Bondar, Canada's first female astronaut. And does this rose ever soar! This is the best small yellow climber I've ever grown. A non-fading repeat bloomer.

Grow it as a shrub. Grow it as a climber. Grow it as a large bush–but just grow it! We get more praise and comment on this hardy climber than any other rose in its class. People have often said they gave up growing roses until they planted Westerland. The massive trusses of frilly apricot blooms are filled with a sweet rose perfume that can perfume an entire room. I love its large, highly disease resistant foliage and iron clad constitution. A truly remarkable rose that should be grown in every garden and sold at every nursery. Westerland also comes in two other colour variations: 'Autumn Sunset' is an amber gold blend, and 'Lemon Meringue' is a clear soft yellow.
