Emily Carr Rose

This is my second Emily Carr Rose bush.  The first one was planted in our home in Red Deer and thrived in a sunny bed.  This new bush has been planted in a Northwest facing bed but due to the openess of the yard should 
receive ample sun.
The Emily Carr Rose bush belongs to the Canadian Artist Series and is a compact plant growing to a height of 1.1 to 1.5 meters. and a width of about 1 meter.
Planted July 17, 2017
The dark red to near black blooms open to deep red semi-double blooms from spring to frost.  Glossy green foliage turns to golden yellow in the fall.  
This bush is vigorous, hardy and disease resistant but intolerant of standing water.
