Modern Blush Rose
Parkland Series Roses
The Modern blush rose, is one of the Parkland series roses, created in Canada for extreme winter hardiness. This cold-hardy, and disease resistant rose produces beautiful old-fashioned blooms that are a peachy/pink color. They remind me of a delicate, (smaller) version of the beautiful Hybrid teas.
If you live in the Northern climates, roses from this series are a good choice for you. (They also do well in warmer climates)

It is a repeat-blooming rose, that is also very low-maintanence.
They are a great choice for hedges or borders.
These hardy roses are highly recommended for cold climate areas where hardiness is a factor. But don't think they are only for cold regions, warmer climates can enjoy them also. Hardy from zones 3-9, these pink shrub roses would look great in your garden!
