CAN: Vineland introduces new rose inspired by northern lights

The latest addition to Vineland’s 49th Parallel Collection of
roses is Aurora Borealis, a sunset pink rose with glossy,
dark green foliage inspired by the contrasting colors of
Canada’s northern lights. It belongs to a collection
of roses bred specifically for Canadian climate conditions -
tolerant of cold weather and able to thrive almost anywhere
in the country.

“As Canadians continue to embrace home gardening in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we’re excited to bring a new, made-in-Canada rose to the marketplace,” says Ian Potter, Vineland’s President and CEO. “For all of us spending more time at home
these days, Aurora Borealis brings a unique Canadian flair to any outdoor living space.”

Vineland reports that the roses in the collection are known for being low maintenance, black spot tolerant and able to withstand temperatures down to -40°C. Vineland’s 49th Parallel Collection is the
product of Canada’s national rose breeding program at Vineland in collaboration with the Canadian Nursery Landscape Association and selections have been tested in field trials across the country through this alliance.
