Yukon Sun is the latest addition to the popular Vineland’s 49th Parallel Collection of made-in-Canada roses. The bright yellow rose has been released by Vineland Research and Innovation Centre (Vineland) and will be available in Canadian garden centres next spring. 

Yukon Sun™ is a golden yellow colour rose with dark   green foliage and early, continuous bloom. Growing to about 1 m in height, it is winter hardy to -35°C and   moderately resistant to black spot and powdery mildew.

“Canadians have embraced these stunning Vineland roses since we first introduced the collection in   conjunction with Canada’s 150th anniversary   celebrations in 2017. We are excited to expand the collection once more with the addition of the first   yellow rose,” says Vineland President and CEO Ian Potter, PhD. “Yukon Sun™ was specifically bred for the Canadian climate and will brighten any outdoor living space with its warm, sunny hues.”
