Rosa glauca 'Nova' - Daggros 'Nova'

Plant Description by Elisabeth Öberg Published in Green Facts 7/2006, Plants for the Future VI. Movium / SLU. Available from Movium tel. 040-41 50 00.

The variety 'Nova' comes from Öjebyn's garden testing station in Piteå (then Agricultural College) and was found by researcher Gunny Larsson in a trial of park roses from 1956. Gunny thought it could be a hybrid between the Canadian The buscrown 'Prairie Dawn', which was part of the experiment, and Rosa glauca, dawn. The species is wildly growing in the Central European mountains and is particularly common in the Alps and Pyrenees.

I think the funny sentence translates to "Gunny thought it could be a hybrid between the Canadian shrub rose 'Prairie Dawn', which was part of the experiment, and Rosa glauca, the Red-Leafed Rose." Maybe HMF could add the synonym daggros to R. glauca?

It is interesting to learn of Canadian roses being tested in Sweden in the 50's. At that time, H.F. (Bert) Harp was in charge of rose breeding at the Morden Experimental Farm. His notes and records were lost when he retired in 1969. Thus, we have no record in Canada of a co-operative trial with Sweden. 'Prairie Dawn' was introduced in Canada in 1959.
Does anyone know if there is a record of the roses grown in the trial and if the trial gardens still exist?

Here is additional information that lists hardiness zone 2 for 'Nova' and also mentions 'Prairie Dawn' as a possible parent. This information was translated from Icelandic to English via google translate.
