I just bought a new rose and it is a beauty. Lovey dubby

It is a new shrub rose and developed at the Morden Research Station.
Olds College is celebrating their Centennial year and this rose as been chosen to symbolize the thousands of people who have attended the college during the last 100 years. This college specializes in agriculture, horticulture, land and environmental management

Olds College Centennial Rose (Rosa x CA 31). Fragrant and hardy shrub.

That's a beautiful rose, Joanne. I'd like to create an entry for it, but I'm confused. The tag says "Olds College Centenniel." Is that just a misspelling of Centennial on the tag or has the rose actually been registered with that spelling of the name?

Wow, that is a gorgeous rose. Hope it makes it's way over to Europe, I sure would like to try it out. That's my favorite rose color. Lovey dubby

Zuzu, That is weird for the tag to have two different spelling. I'm not sure how to investigate. I will try to contact the Olds College and see what they say. Good eye, Zuzu.

The Morden Research called me and this rose is part of the Canadian Artist Series, yet to be named. Currently it is simply "CA 31".

I can create an entry for CA-31 if you want to add your photos to it. We can add the exhibition name later. It actually is already listed on HMF:

When you add the photos, be sure to use the link in this thread. The database search engine doesn't handle hyphenated words well, so if you search for CA-31, you'll get a list of everything in the database with "ca" in the name.
