That is how Canada Blooms described this newest 49th Parallel Rose when they announced it as their 2021 Rose of the Year. Like others in this series, Aurora Borealis boasts disease resistance, cold hardiness (Zone 3) and great beauty among its chief attributes. Truly Canadian! It is a compact, repeat bloomer built upon a rich green foliage.
49th Parallel Series Roses
Canadian Shield was the first of this exciting series of roses. Its rich Canadian red was a natural for the 2017 Canada 150 celebrations. Then came the beautiful coral and yellow Chinook Sunrise. This new Aurora Borealis is the third in the series. We are already anticipating the introduction of Yukon Sun in the next few years.
When Can You Buy Aurora Borealis
