I planted this rose in the summer of 2006 in remembrance of my Grandpa (Jacob Rosloot) who passed away in June. It is a ROSACEAE Rosa Parkland 'Winnipeg Parks' - Winnipeg Parks Rose. I picked this particular rose because I saw one at the Calgary Zoo and thought it was very beautiful and knew it was very hardy in our area. It will always serve to remind me of my Grandpa's love of gardening.
The first row of pics show the rose at various stages of growth. The second row are my attempts to capture it artistically!
