Rosa xanthina 'Canary Bird'

Rose 'Canary Bird', Rosa 'Canary Bird', Rosa ecae 'Canary Bird', Shrub Roses


One of the earliest roses to bloom, award-winning Rosa xanthina 'Canary Bird' is a spreading, bushy shrub with slightly scented, single, bright yellow flowers, 2 in. across (5 cm), with prominent stamens. Born on gracefully arching stems in late spring, the blooms stand out against the foliage of small, fern-like mid-green leaves. They give way to a crop of dark maroon hips, extending the season of interest of the plant. A charming shrub rose, 'Canary Bird' sometimes rewards gardeners with a second flush of blooms in early fall. Happy in dappled shade, Canary Bird' makes a fine informal hedge.
