Last summer I wrote about the Campfire Rose, a new hardy rose introduction for the harsh Canadian climate. I am sad to say that my rose did not survive it's first Calgary winter. As it is marketed as a zone 3 shrub, I did not provide any protection for it. I've been patiently waiting for it's first buds to appear, but have only been greeted with black stems.
So if you are like me and prefer a low maintenance garden with very little fussing, I have to give the Campfire Rose a thumbs down.
