    What is a Moss Rose? Named for the distinctive prickly growth on the buds and canes, this rose variety most likely originated as a mutation or "sport" of a centifolia rose in the early 18th century. This is a great "scratch & sniff" plant: if you rub the moss between your fingers, volatile oils are released, producing a pleasant balsamic fragrance. Moss roses grow 3 to 6 feet tall and are usually quite winter hardy. (Picture is from Redoute's Roses.)

    'Hansaland' (Rugosa Hybrid) - deep red semi-double with yellow stamens; dense and healthy plant with glossy light green foliage; very hardy and floriferous rose; 4'x3'; Z3.

    What is a Noisette rose? First introduced in the early 1800s by Philippe Noisette of South Carolina, these fragrant roses combine the clustered blooming habits of the Musk roses with the continuous flowering & bigger blossoms of the China roses. These plants get quite large, sometimes up to 20 feet, but a Noisette in full flower is a gorgeous thing, more roses than you know what do with! Noisettes are at their best in warmer climates.

    'F.J.Grootendorst' (Rugosa Hybrid') - The flowers look like carnations with serrated edges. This is one extremely thorny plant!

    'Polstjärnan' or Polestar (Modern Climber) - rambler that produces clusters of snow white double blooms that are fragrant; vigorous plant that blooms in spring; very hardy; 15'x6'; Z2; from Finland.

    'Scarlet Pavement' aka Kate Apart (Rugosa Hybrid) - withstands driveway salt - this is one tough rose! Repeats well, strong scent. It is truly disease resistant - one of the only roses in my collection that is always healthy and vigourous! I purchased it at Old Heirloom Roses (link through this photo) just outside Halifax -a highly recommended supplier!

    What is a Hybrid Gallica? Sometimes referred to as the "Mad Gallicas" due to their often wild colors, the Gallicas are one of the oldest bred rose families. Gallicas are usually quite fragrant (with a few exceptions). The plants are small (about 3 to 4 feet), once blooming, and winter hardy. Illustration: Rosa gallica Evêque by Redouté.
