Campfire Rose (Rosa 'CA 29') was named after a beloved painting by Canadian artist, Tom Thomson, ‘Campfire’, painted in 1916. Bred to branch at a 45 degree angle, this rose has wonderful width making it a great low hedge, or high groundcover. Campfire’s flaming blooms of pink, red and yellow change thought the long blooming season. Considered a 'continuous bloomer', Campfire will flower constantly in your garden all summer until a hard frost. Dark green glossy foliage has excellent disease resistance; and stems are smooth with only the occasional short thorns.
One of the “Artist’s Series” variety, Campfire was bred and tested across Canada and is hardy to Zone 3a without protection. If protected it will be able to weather more severe winters. Together, Campfire’s hardiness, heavy blooming habit, and flaming blooms bring incredible impact to the garden.
