Français   

In the Fall of 1961, I was asked by Agriculture Canada to look into the possibility of developing winterhardy and everblooming roses. (...) I knew nothing about roses. This was a blessing because I had no preconceived notion. I had to learn. The easiest way was by observation.

Felicitas Svejda, from: The Canadian Explorer Roses (2008)
