Landscape Rose

Canada Blooms selected Aurora Borealis to be the plant of the year in 2021. The bright dancing lights of the aurora are captured in the blooming clusters of this dramatic sunset pink rose set against dark green and glossy foliage. This low-maintenance rose measures one-metre in height with a one-metre spread and features black spot resistance and winter hardiness across Canada.  Vineland’s 49th Parallel Collection stems from Canada’s national rose program at Vineland in collaboration with the Canadian Nursery Landscape Association.  The 49th Parallel roses are grown for both strength and beauty, and named for Canadian natural phenomena.

Growing and Maintenance Tips

Roses prefer moist, well drained, slightly acidic soils but are known to be quite adaptable to soils except for very wet areas.  Prune in spring, cutting back to just above large buds. Plant in full sun with good air circulation for best performance. Deadheading  will promote more continuous bloom.
