Celebrating Canada's 150th birthday with Canadian Shield
We planted this beautiful rose on Canada's special day. It is a perfect addition to our gardens and we look forward to admire it for years to come.
Happy 150th Canada!
One beautiful morning, out I went shopping at a neighbourhood nursery. Looking at the many beautiful plants on display, I couldn't help coming back to Vineland's Canadian Shield rose bushes in a red maple leaf containers. I just love the bright red (maroon) rose flowers.
I was looking for some way to celebrate it. I live in King City, Ontario and in a Seniors building. There was petunias but these only last one summer and it was at our Garden Centre in Vaughan that I first saw this rose for sale. I didn't buy one then. But went home and began to search the internet for it and the more I read about it the more I wanted one of these for my garden. So the next time I went out there I bought one. I have never regretted it. Originally I had it planted in one part of the garden but it was being challenged by the Hosta and somebody parked the barbecue in front of it. So I got the fellah to transplant it for me in another part of the garden and it is gorgeous with all the red blooms on it. I can see it from where I sit and meet the ladies for coffee every morning out the window!! It also smells beautiful. Here is the picture I took of it on Canada Day. When I bought it there were no buds on it but as you can see there is now!!
I couldn't resist this spectacular flower! 2017 not only marks Canada's 150th birthday, but I'm also getting married this year! I'm so excited to watch the flower bloom for years to come, and remind me of an important year, both in my life, and in Canadian history.

After learning about the Canadian Shield rose this March Break at Canada Blooms, I knew that my students would love to learn more about the science behind this amazing rose!
At our Canada 150 celebration last week, students had the opportunity to learn more about the rose and plant one here at HNMCS!
Members of the Eco-Club were so excited to get out and plant this beautiful flower in honour of our country's birthday. Hopefully it takes root and grows for the next 150 years! Can't wait to see the beautiful blooms!
