Alberta Wild Rose
We have a lot of Wild Roses (aka Rosa acicularis aka Prickly Roses) spread across the property. The wild rose became Alberta’s floral emblem in 1930. They are quite hardy and do well every year. They come in various shades of pink. Their stems are quite thick and the thorns are formidable!
