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)

This low-growing, bushy rose was bred in Canada by the Department of Agriculture, The(Modern Experimental Station). They were specifically bred for winter hardiness, and named after this place.
Most of the roses from this series begin with the name modern...
This is a wonderful repeat-blooming rose, that is also very low-maintenance, and very easy to grow. 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! (and mine)
