The pink roses next to my deck are starting to bloom right now. They're William Baffin roses from the Canadien Explorer collection. These grow close to 12 feet tall and are completley hardy for this area. I also have Henry Kelsey and Henry Hudson from this collection of roses. Henry Kelsey is red and extremly georgeous! Hudsons are pure white. These roses are developed from Kordessii roses which gives them their "wild" vigor. I have between 25 and 30 roses in my yard. Another favorite is the antique rambler called Seagull. Not recomended for this area but I'm happy to say it has survived several winters.
