The newest rose to join the Canadian Artists Series will be named after the Canadian pianist and jazz composer Oscar Peterson. The rose will be available in 2016 and will join the other roses of the Canadian Artists Series: Félix Leclerc, Emily Carr, Bill Reid and the very popular Campfire rose, that hit the market in 2013.
The Oscar Peterson rose is upright in habit with clean glossy foliage. The large semi-double flowers are pure white with a centre of yellow stamens. It is a very hardy rose, a good repeat bloomer and highly disease resistant.
More information will be coming soon.
