This is probably my favorite plant in the garden. It is so bright and continually blooming in my zone 3 garden in Steamboat Springs. Love this! Hardy over several of our cold winters without any special care.

This is a terrific rose for my very difficult climate. I'm a 3b at 6,000 feet just 30 miles from Yellowstone National Park. Winnipeg Parks starts blooming in mid June and will continue until it's covered with snow. The blooms are deep pink and very large, about 3 - 4". It grows to about 2' x 2' here and has beautiful green foliage that starts as red. I have 42 varieties of roses, but if I could have only one, this would be it!

This plant has struggled with black spot for me even though it is said to be resistant. It did survive a late freeze where my other roses did not.

'Winnepeg Parks' rose is one of the Parkland Series developed in Canada. It forms a small shrub (about 3 ft) with an extended blooming season. Very hardy, this one was developed to survive the harsh climate of the prairies. It was released in 1990 and has an ARS rating of 7.5. Very disease resistant and a moderate fragrance.
