Morden Blush Rose

Morden Blush Rose in my garden
The Morden Blush rose is one in a series of "Mordens" (Parkland) developed in Morden, Manitoba to be hardy in the prairie provinces of Canada.  The bush resembles a tea rose bearing clusters of smaller rosebuds that open wide to blooms somewhat like a cabbage rose but smaller in diameter.

Others to look for in the same series are Morden Sunrise, Morden Ruby, Morden Amorette, Morden Belle, Morden Centennial, Morden Fireglow, Morden Snow Beauty. 

Another gorgeous hardy rose developed by the Morden Research Station is Winnipeg Parks.  It has single (sometimes clustered) hot pink large blossoms.  A true beauty!

Funny, that's the exact shade and form of the roses I had in my mind, when I wrote my post on wanting a gated garden...sigh. I don't know if they come in a climber, but I will be looking out for them. Armstrong will be cold, and the roses will need to be hardy.
