Golden RoseThe Rose in Canada
When 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!

Tulip Mania!
TULIPThe beautiful tulip is perennial plant with waxy leaves and a large, delicate flower. It is grown from bulbs in gardens all over North America. The tulip is famous for an interesting incident, the "tulip mania" of the seventeenth century. In the Netherlands, tulip bulb speculation reached an all-time high in 1636-37, with some bulbs costing more than a person's average annual income, and "tulip futures" contracts being bought and sold for tulips that hadn't even yet been grown! Needless to say, the speculative bubble burst and many were financially ruined. Today, we appreciate the tulip for its beauty, but now know that coins are a much better investment.

Tulips have an unique connection to Canada. In 1945 Canadian soldiers played a principal role in liberating Holland. Since World War II, these two nations have enjoyed a special friendship. Earlier in the war, Queen Wilhelmina of the Netherlands sent her only child and heir, Princess Juliana, to Canada for safety, along with the current queen, Beatrix, then a young child. On January 19th, 1943, Princess Juliana gave birth to another daughter, Princess Margriet Francisca, resulting in the first royal baby ever born in North America! As a special gesture of gratitude after the war, the Dutch queen sent 100,000 tulip bulbs to Canada, and Princess Juliana sent another 20,000 as a personal gift, with more following every year. Today, over one million tulips bloom each May in Ottawa, where the annual Tulip Festival is held. In this way these gifts of thanks became an annual bequest and transformed Ottawa into the floral showcase that is celebrated every year, a glorious tradition!
