Bugnet Roses in the Bruce Heart Gardens
These heritage roses are blooming in the Bruce Heart Gardens which is across the road from the cabin.
They are from the "Bugnet Collection of Roses".
The "Thérése Bugnet" rose, named after Mr. Bugnet's sister (a nun in France), is a hybrid from the native Alberta rose, a Russian double wild rose and several cultivated species. It is a very hardy 5 to 6 foot shrub rose which produces double pink blossoms starting mid-June and on until a killing frost in the fall. Other hardy double flowering shrub roses he developed are the "Marie Bugnet", a double, white very thorny rose, the "Betty Bugnet", a double, deep pink, the "Louise Bugnet", a double, white, very fragrant, rose with sparse thorns, the "Madeline Bugnet", a double, pink, very thorny, compact rose bush.
The roses pictured below are from the Bugnet Collection but I have not yet been able to identify them by specific name.
