Hope for Humanity

When it comes to winter hardy roses, there’s little choice with deeply-colored flowers. This hardy saturated red takes the cake for cold conditions. Big sprays of blooms give loads of color, set against deep green leaves. A vigorous & fitting choice to honor the 100th anniversary of the Canadian Red Cross. Hardy & red, red, red.
