Flowery Friday: ‘Louis Riel’ rose.


Rosa ‘Louis Riel’ – a real gem found at the Saskatoon Forestry Farm Park and Zoo (Saskatoon, Saskatchewan) in July of last year. Love the blue-green foliage and the pure white single flowers!  I’m not quite sure what the tag-along insect is on the uppermost bloom.


  1. Beautiful flowers! Love the details in the picture where you can see the little insect (spider) on the edge of one of the flowers:)

    • I didn’t notice the spider until I put these up on the computer…it fits in beautifully. 🙂

      Thanks so much for the follow – I’ve really been enjoying the photos on your blog and I’m glad to have found it!

  2. What a lovely pristine flower! I love glaucous foliage and I bet this would look fantastic grown with the pink single Rosa glauca; I wonder if it can tolerate a bit of shade, as R. glauca does?

I'm delighted to hear from you - thanks so much for your comments!
