Colicutt and Marshall worked for a number of years for the Canadian Agricultural department breeding roses that would survive the frigid winters of the Canadian prairies and thrive during the short but punishing Canadian summers. A number of their best roses are now in circulation. Morden Blush might be the prettiest of them.

The plant grows not quite three feet tall, is reasonably well branched, carries ample healthy matt green foliage. The petals are remarkably thin, but the roses are not notably fragrant.
