Rosa 'Hope for Humanity' is a multi-stemmed deciduous shrub with an upright spreading habit of growth. Clusters of small velvety deep red roses bloom at the ends of the branches. Flowers bloom from the first flush of summer to the first freeze. They are excellent for cutting. The oval compound leaves are dark green throughout the season and turn yellow in fall.

Rosa 'Hope for Humanity' in 1984. It is in honour of the Canadian Red Cross Society centennial. It is part of the Explorer series, a set of rose varieties specially developed at Canadian research stations, to survive Canadian winters. They can be hardy down to -35 °C with only snow as protection; and don’t mind hot summers. Explorer series roses require minimal care and pruning. They are disease resistant, flower repeatedly throughout the summer, and come in a variety of colours and sizes.
