 Henry Hudson

Explorer Series

Henry Hudson, a rugosa hybrid introduced in 1976, is a semi-dwarf shrub that grows 0.5 - 0.7 m in height and has a diameter of 1.0 m at Ottawa. The plant is very hardy, flowers repeatedly and freely, and is highly resistant to blackspot and powdery mildew.

Flowers are white with a pink tinge resembling apple blossoms, are fragrant, and have 20 petals. Softwood cuttings are easily rooted.

Henry Hudson has been tested at Ottawa since 1967 and at other locations across Canada since 1973. Only slight winter kill was observed in Ottawa during severe winters. This rose is generally hardy in zone 2.

This cultivar was obtained from open pollination of the cultivar Schneezwerg.

This site is our link to all of Canada and the world.  This country of ours is diverse, the second largest in the world after Russia, with 9 zones of plant hardiness.

OUR MISSION STATEMENT? We want to interest the expert rosarian and help the novice.  For the casual grower of a few roses we will give basic advice, (see ASK!!  above) but for those intending to include a greater number of roses in his/her garden, membership in our society should be considered. Such a step will afford full access to our web portal (thank you AWF), wherein there is MUCH information about growing roses in Canada, as well as a direct line of communication with the World Federation of Rose Societies and its publications.. Therefore join CRS and gain access to a world of expertise.
