The first hardy yellow flowered Parland rose.
Morden Sunrise, bred by the Department of Agriculture in Canada for winter hardiness, was introduced in 1999.
According to the Canadian Rose Society site, this rose is a complex mix of; Rosa Arkansana, Assiniboine, White Bouquet, Fire King and Prairie Princess.
The colour, as you can see by the photo is best described as coral.
So far it has survived two winters in my garden and showed a good resistance to diseases.
