Golden RoseWhen the first immigrants began arriving in Canada almost 300 years ago, many brought the botanical treasures from their homeland. The first roses to arrive were from France, but they were ill equipped to endure the extreme climates of North America. It wasn't until later that hardier varieties began to tempt their fate against the Canadian winter.

One of the most notable is R. Hugonis, or Father Hugo's rose, named after Father Hugh Scallon, the missionary who discovered this beautiful rose in China and sent it to England in 1899. It wasn't long before the tough disposition of this rugged rose became obvious, and the Golden Rose of China was brought to Canada.

This vigorous beauty is a gardener's dream! Every spring, despite the ravages of winter, this 8 foot (2.5 m) tall shrub will produce a bounty of delicate blooms. Their perfect golden color is a sight to behold!
