First roses of 2008

These hardy roses were all developed by Agriculture Canada in Ottawa, Ontario (Explorer series) or Morden, Manitoba (Morden Parkland series). Yesterday we had buds, today we have blooms!

Alexander MacKenzie

Morden Blush - a pale pink rose but this flower looks almost white!

Morden Centennial

A peony! This is the first flower on this peony in three years, and it survived two moves since the initial planting. So not only is this flower pretty, it's hardy too!
