This Modern Shrub rose was hybridized by Collicutt and introduced in 1988. It grows 3-4 feet tall and is prized for its extreme cold hardiness.
The medium-sized, feminine flowers range from light pink to white with pink centers. They are lightly fragrant and begin to grace the disease resistant plants in early spring.
This heavy bloomer is heat as well as cold tolerant although the flowers will fade to ivory in very hot weather. They fade to white as they age in any event.
Morden Blush has been chosen by the Canadian Rose Society as their favorite Canadian Shrub Rose. It grows, without winter protection, into USDA zone 4a and will tolerate the heat as far south as zone 9b.
